UAE’s minister of state for future food security keen to strengthen ties with Egypt
Minister of state for future food security H.E Mariam bint Mohammed Almheiri has visited Egypt in a bid to strengthen economic and trade cooperation between the UAE and the African state in agricultural production.
She said in a statement: "The UAE is keen to strengthening its economic cooperation with Egypt, especially in food security. There are strong prospects for enhancing the UAE-Egypt relations at all levels, particularly in the field of food and agricultural production."
Her Excellency visited Barka Ghalioun, the largest fish farm in the region that produces 6,600 tons of fish per cycle. The farm officials briefed Her Excellency on the work of the project and they discussed ways to increase transferring the Egyptian experience to the UAE.
It is hoped that more small and medium enterprises in the F&B industry can play a role in the increase of trade between Egypt and the UAE.
