Agriculture and Land Reclamation Minister Ezz Eldin Abu Steit said that the Central Administration of Plant Quarantine succeeded in opening Japanese markets for the Egyptian agricultural products.
In statements to the press on Thursday, Abu Steit said that the Japanese market has been opened to many Egyptian crops after holding negotiations with the Japanese side and carrying out technical and quarantine studies.
