Egyptian government says there is no shortage in agricultural resources
The Egyptian Minister of Supplies and Internal Commerce, Mr. Hassan Khadher, declared that there are more than enough agricultural resources in Egypt at the present time.
Al-Hayat recently reported that the existing wheat and sugar supply is enough to feed the Egyptian population for the next 7 months. The Minister asserted that American wheat shipments continue to arrive regularly into Egypt. The available strategic wheat quantities amount to 2.2 million tons. The available strategic sugar quantities amount to 2 million tons, while the domestic monthly sugar consumption stands at 150,000 tons. — (Mena Report)
