Egypt claims of achieving 75 per cent self-sufficiency in sugar


Egypt has achieved 75% self-sufficiency in the sugar industry, said Minister of Supply and International Trade Ali El-Moselhy.

He has issued a statement stating that Egypt will soon achieve 100 per cent self-sufficiency in sugar production. It will increase further once we complete working on new sugar mills.

Minister said, “Our aim is to make Egypt competitive in local, regional and international level competition in the sugar sector.”

Earlier, Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tarek El Molla had announced that Egypt plans to reach self-sufficiency in petroleum products in 2023. He had pointed out that there are many factors contributing to gradually achieving self-sufficiency in petroleum products, such as operating new refineries and raising the efficiency of current facilities, rationalising consumption, expanding the national project to convert cars to work on natural gas, and improving the transport network.
