The Minister of International Cooperation H.E. Dr. Rania A. Al-Mashat participated in the opening session of the "Cairo Food Summit", under the title "Investing in Achieving Efficiency and Sustainability of Agriculture", which is held under the auspices of the Ministries of International Cooperation, Trade and Industry, Agriculture and Land Reclamation, Finance and Internal Trade. 

The event included the participation of H.E Dr. Ali Al-Moselhi, Minister of Supply and Internal Trade; H.E Al-Sayed Al-Qaisar, Minister of Agriculture and Land Reclamation; Michele Quaroni, Ambassador of Italy in Egypt; and representative of the European Union Ambassador, and the session was moderated by Dr. Alaa Ezz, Secretary General of the General Federation of Chambers of Commerce.

In her speech, Al-Mashat stressed the importance of food security as a top priority for the government, especially at this time, explaining that the country began in 2014 to significantly expand food security efforts, build silos, and expand the agricultural area.

Al-Mashat noted that the Ministry of International Cooperation is working to move quickly with multilateral and bilateral development partners to meet the country's national priorities and achieve integration between national efforts and the efforts of international partners to provide all aspects of support in food security. During the past year, the Ministry coordinated with many development partners, including the World Bank (WBG) and the African Development Bank (AfDB), to provide emergency soft funds to support food security in light of the repercussions of the Russian-Ukrainian crisis.
