Friday، 17 October 2014 - 12:00 AM
Minister of Supply and Internal Trade Khaled Hanafy on Thursday 16/10/2014 said that the Cabinet agreed to export rice but on conditions.
Any exporter who seeks to export rice should meet the government conditions of delivering the supply ministry with one ton of rice at a price of EGP 2,000, he added.
The move will contribute to reducing the prices of rice allocated for supply commodities and will be in favor of the Egyptian citizens who have smart supply cards, the minister said in statements.
In the same context, Trade and Industry Minister Mounir Fakhry Abdel-Nour said that the Cabinet has agreed to allow exporting rice until August 2015.
