The deal provides for cooperation in areas of common interest through the transfer of advanced and innovative technological services, according to Egypt’s Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation.

Systematic analysis and integrated methodologies will strengthen production in biotechnology and biosafety, with subsequent training and technical support for workers in the sector, according to the official statement.

It also provided for the exchange of information and technologies, such as vaccines or monitoring systems, for the control of diseases in this animal population that affect human health and the country’s economy.

Al-Qusayr, Minister of Agriculture, pointed out that the poultry industry employs three million people and over 90 billion Egyptian pounds (some 5.8 billion dollars) are invested in it.

The government prioritizes poultry production as one of the fundamental pillars for the food security of Egyptians, the minister said.

Meanwhile, Nasser Din Haj Amin, FAO’s representative in Cairo, noted that the first strategic goal of his organization is to contribute to the eradication of hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition among the people.

In that regard, the signing of the memorandum of understanding with the Egyptian Poultry Farmers Union is important as it will contribute to strengthening national capacities to withstand threats and crises, he stressed.
