Egypt's Agriculture and Land Reclamation Minister Ezzedin Abu Steit said that the Central Administration of Plant Quarantine has opened markets in Japan 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.

Both sides probed export requirements for a number of Egyptian vegetables and fruits, the minister said, adding that it was agreed upon to apply phytosanitary conditions required by Japan.

The agricultural crops to be exported to the Japanese market include potatoes, green onions, cucumbers, garlic, courgettes, okra, artichoke, green peas, green beans, asparagus, sesame, melons, watermelons and dates, Abu Steit said.
