Egypt has taken serious and important steps to address the phenomenon of encroachment on agricultural lands, with the aim of preserving the agricultural lands for the future generations.
Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi ordered on Saturday continued coordination among relevant authorities to monitor cases of encroachment on agricultural lands and take strict procedures to face them.
Many owners already built extended family houses and villas, while others made demarcation of plots of lands with stones in preparation for constructions.
Egypt’s Supreme Administrative Court denied the ownership of any agricultural land to foreigners in a verdict issued Tuesday.
Sisi announced new social security measures, including cancelling the tax.
