Egypt

The United States exported $807 million worth of agricultural and related products to Egypt in 2016. Top exports included corn, soybeans, and beef. Long-term prospects in Egypt remain good, but the country’s economic situation is negatively affecting short-term growth.

Barriers to the entry of U.S. food and agricultural products are often significant, particularly for those of animal origin. Best prospects for U.S. exporters beyond the bulk commodities are dairy products, edible fish and seafood. Political and economic uncertainty has dampened Egyptian demand for U.S. consumer-oriented products, at least in the short term.

The FAS regional office in Cairo covers Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, as well as Egypt.
