On Tuesday, South Sudan recently approved to import livestock and its agricultural products from Egypt, according to the Ministry of Agriculture.
In an official statement, Minister Of Agriculture Al-Sayed El-Quseir explained: “This progress comes within the national strategies and accommodations of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi to open new international markets for domestic products, as well as to boost the mutual cooperation between Egypt and South Sudan.”
Furthermore, El-Quseir reviewed the achievements made by Egypt in the field of domestic wealth. He pointed out that such a move would be “good for the national economy and easier for our farmers to undertake the growth.” The minister added that raising animal quality standards would advantage farmers relative to other countries.
Last week, Egypt’s minister of agriculture visited South Sudan officials to discuss the wide-scale cooperation in their fields.
In this regard, El- Quseir signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to lunch and establish an integrated Egyptian farm for agricultural, animal and livestock production.
Meanwhile, they underscored the prospects for agricultural cooperation between the two African countries and to provide all aspects of technical support to them.
