Egypt: Al-Sisi inaugurates 2nd phase of water-preserving national greenhouse project

President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi inaugurated 1,300 greenhouses at Mohamed Naguib military base on Saturday morning, as part of the national agricultural project.

The first phase of the project was opened in February 2018 to grow agricultural products using less water for irrigation than traditional farming.

Al-Sisi said that the new phase’s productivity is estimated at around 184,000 tonnes of vegetables annually.

The greenhouse projects will contribute to achieving food security and bridging the gap between production and consumption in the country, maximising the use of available land for agricultural activities while rationalising water usage, establishing integrated agricultural communities, providing high-quality products free of pollutants, and creating new job opportunities.
