Saudi delegation to inspect quality control measures on Egypt’s agricultural products in March

A Saudi delegation is expected in Cairo by early March to inspect quality control measures on Egypt’s agricultural products and discuss the possibility of lifting the kingdom’s ban on their imports, Al Mal reports. Saudi Arabia had banned imports of Egyptian strawberries and peppers over concerns of residual pesticides, prompting several other GCC countries to follow suit. The Agriculture Ministry later moved to impose stricter regulations on agricultural exports to the GCC after the successive bans. Trade and Industry Minister Tarek Kabil and Agriculture Minister Abdel Moneim El Banna had been expected to lead a delegation to KSA soon to discuss the bans, as we noted earlier this month.
