Egypt’s agricultural exports down slightly in 1H2020 despite slowdown in global trade

Egypt’s agricultural exports dip slightly in 1H2020: Egypt exported 3.47 mn tonnes of fruits and vegetables since the beginning of 2020, down fractionally from the 3.7 mn tonnes Egypt exported in 1H2019, despite the covid-19 pandemic taking a toll on the volume of global trade, Agriculture Minister El Sayed El Quseir said. Citrus exports made over a third of the total amount sold abroad, with 1.38 mn tonnes leaving our ports since 1 January, said Agricultural Quarantine Authority head Ahmed Al Attar. Potato and onion exports rounded up the top three, followed closely by exports of grapes and garlic.
