Egypt: Promoting Sustainable Investment in Egypt’s Food Security 2017 Forum

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Under the auspices of the Government of Egypt, the Food and Agriculture Organization in cooperation with the World Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development organized the Promoting Sustainable Investment in Egypt’s Food Security forum on December 5, 2017. The forum bought together policymakers, finance institutions, producer associations and leading agri-business companies to discuss agricultural investment in Egypt. The discussion focused on making Egyptian agriculture more sustainable; in particular, by improving food system efficiency. Also discussed was the need to increase agricultural productivity through technology and investment in the import food supply chain. It was recognized that Egypt will remain the world’s largest importer of wheat, as well as major importer of yellow corn (i.e., for feed) and soybeans for the next five years.
