Egypt witnessed the introduction of a 34,000 feddan greenhouse project, last Saturday. The project is set to take place in north of Cairo and is inaugurated by President Abdel Fatah Al Sisi.
It is considered to be a massive project that will include more than 7,000 agricultural projects, it was implemented by the National Company for Protective Cultivation under the supervision of Chinese and Spanish firms.
The project aims at solving many of the issues that are facing Egypt at the moment, first off, it intends on saving water as well as providing more organic products. In addition to providing at least 75,000 job opportunities and increasing food production by yielding around 1.5 million tons of vegetables yearly.
Such a sustainability in food production aims at stabilizing the prices of the products nationally.
