CAIRO – 18 September 2021: Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi followed up on Saturday on achieving optimum use of wain water and floods in developing rain-fed agriculture.

Sisi’s remarks came during a meeting with Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly, Agriculture Minister El-Sayed El-Quseir, Minister of Irrigation Mohamed Abdel Ati and head of Armed Forces’ Engineering Authority Ehab El-Faar.

Sisi also followed up on the national project for seed production, presidential spokesman Bassam Radi said in a statement.

In this regard, Sisi ordered expansion of the project for seed production in Egypt given its vital significance and its role in protecting crops from pests as well as developing high-quality agricultural strains and varieties, and reducing import costs.

Sisi followed up, during the meeting, on the joint efforts between the ministries of irrigation and agriculture in the field of sequestering and distributing rainwater and torrential rain.

This aims to prevent the waste of these water resources and to achieve optimal use of it in rainy areas nationwide.

This comes through relying on the map of valleys and in cooperation and coordination between the specialized bodies in the Ministry of Irrigation and the Desert Research Center of the Ministry of Agriculture.

Sisi urged continuing efforts to achieve optimum use of all available water resources in the Republic in integration with the state’s efforts in the national project of lining canals.
