CAIRO - 30 April 2020:Head of the Central Administration for Agricultural Quarantine Ahmed el Attar has said that Egypt is currently topping world countries in the export of orange, surpassing Spain, which was seen as the world's number one exporter of orange during the past few years.

In press statements on Thursday, Attar added that the Spanish markets received this year around 3,000 tons of Egyptian orange.

With the beginning of 2020, Egypt's total exports of orange hit 1.3 million tons, he said, asserting that there is a growing global demand for Egyptian agricultural products, which are characterized by their high quality.

Since January 2020, Egypt's total exports of agricultural products exceeded 2.2 million tons, despite the global outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
