Kabil, Banna to visit KSA to resolve imports ban

Kabil, El Banna to visit KSA to resolve imports ban: Trade and Industry Minister Tarek Kabil and Agriculture Minister Abdel Moneim El Banna are planning to lead a delegation to Saudi Arabia soon to discuss its bans on imports of Egyptian strawberries and peppers over residual pesticides, Al Shorouk reports. Saudi Arabia is the only Arab country with a ban on Egyptian products still in place, Agricultural Exports Council head Abdel Hamid El Demerdash said. The Agriculture Ministry had previously moved to impose stricter regulations on exports to the GCC after the successive bans, and said in July that Egyptian guava exports would be subjected to Global Good Agricultural Practices standards as of this season.
