Export Development Authority rolls out five-year strategy

Export Development Authority rolls out five-year strategy: The Trade and Industry Ministry’s Export Development Authority (EDA) has completed its new export promotion strategy for 2017-2023, Minister Tarek Kabil said on Tuesday, Al Shorouk reported. The strategy relies on streamlining export procedures, putting in place an authority to ensure the quality of exported products, increasing Egypt’s participation in international expos, and offering technical assistance programs to exporters. The EDA has also prepared a study on the performance of Egypt’s agricultural exports over the past three years to help exporters improve their operations, according to EDA head Sherine El Shorbagy. The agriculture and trade ministries had previously said they are planning to impose internationally quality standards after Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries banning imports of Egyptian strawberries and peppers.
