Kuwait has facilitated procedures of the entry of the Egyptian agricultural exports to its markets, Head of the Central Administration of Plant Quarantine Ahmed el Attar said on Monday April 20.
Attar mentioned in a report submitted to Agriculture Minister El Sayed El Quseir, that the Kuwaiti ports used to hold the Egyptian shipments and test them before their final release, a matter which negatively impacted Egypt's exports to Kuwait in 2018 and 2019.
The Plant Quarantine authorities engaged in long negotiations with the Kuwaiti side, which resulted in canceling a previous decision tightening control over the Egyptian agricultural exports, Attar noted.
The new Kuwaiti decision will contribute to increasing Egyptian exports, he added.
