FAO, EBRD workshop tackles food security in Egypt | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

FAO news, 18/07/2018 - The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) held two workshops on 17-18 July 2018 in Cairo (Egypt) on grain market data availability and quality in Egypt and supply chain efficiency and national food security, in cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation, the Ministry of Supply and Internal Trade, the Egyptian Grain Suppliers Association and other private sector representatives. 

Governmental and private sector representatives attended the workshop including the Egyptian Organization for Standardization and Quality, the General Organization for Export and Import Control, the Central Department of Quarantine, the General Administration of Food Control in the grain sector of the Ministry of Health and the National Food Safety Authority

The discussions during the two workshops focused (1) on reviewing the methodologies used to collect, prepare and validate Egyptian official estimates on areas planted and harvested, yields, consumption, trade and stocks of grains and oilseeds and (2) on identifying obstacles facing grain and oilseed imports to enable a more efficient supply chain that will ensure the availability of strategic commodities and reduce the cost of grain imports in the future.

According to the FAO and the EBRD, the private sector can help improve the sustainability of grain imports in the country by contributing their know-how and financial backing.

Quatre organisations professionnelles appellent l'Etat à renoncer à fixer les prix des produits agricoles | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

The HuffPostMaghreb, 04/02/2019 - Les représentants des quatre organisations professionnelles en Tunisie, appellent lundi l’Etat à renoncer à la fixation des prix et à les soumettre à la règle de l’offre et de la demande. Le Ministre du Commerce Omar Behi indique que 87% des produits exposés à la vente sont déjà ”libéralisés” et que les produits agricoles importés ne dépassent pas 0,1% de l’ensemble des produits importés.

De son côté, le président de l’Union Tunisienne de l’Agriculture, et de la Pêche (UTAP), Abdelmajid Ezzar, a souligné la nécessité d’adapter les prix des produits agricoles à l’effort de l’agriculteur et au coût de la production, appelant ”à renforcer le sytème de production agricole et à faciliter la commercialisation des produits agricoles”. Tous réitèrent la proposition de l’Organisation en 2012, et appellent à créer un observatoire national des prix.
