CAIRO – 20 July 2018: Egyptian Minister of Agriculture Ezz el-Din Abu Steet and Ambassador of Kazakhstan in Cairo Arman Isagaliev discussed on Thursday ways to boost bilateral cooperation in the field of agriculture and related activities.

Both sides discussed the ways to increase trade exchange of agricultural products and crops especially that Kazakhstan is famous for the production of wheat and meat, and enjoys an abundance of livestock, especially sheep.

On the other side, Minister Abu Steet suggested that the trade exchange includes exporting grapes, mangoes and citrus from Egypt to Kazakhstan.

This meeting comes in light of Egypt’s recently adopted laboratory measures, aiming to expand its agricultural exports, as well as open new markets abroad.

The minister said that the Egyptian government has worked intensively to develop the investment climate in the country, and encourage investments especially in the agricultural field.

Cooperation between Egypt and Kazakhstan can lead to establishing wheat silos in Safaga town located on the Red Sea Coast, as a way to facilitate the storage process, and to distribute to other countries, added Minister Abu Steet.

The two sides agreed to exchange experiences in a number of relevant fields, including: veterinary medicine, control of agricultural pests, and various animal diseases.

Kazakhstan is also one of the destinations that Egypt is looking to boost tourism traffic with.
