Sisi, Baz Confer On Boosting Food Production

President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi met on Tuesday 3092014 with Egyptian scientist Farouk el-Baz to discuss ways to boost food production.

The meeting focused on the optimal use of Egypt’s topography to serve the development corridor project, said presidential spokesman Alaa Youssef.

They also discussed way to engage Egyptian, Arab and foreign institutions in implementing development projects meant to give the national economy a shot in the arm, Youssef said.

Baz showed Sisi satellite images taken in August 2014 of a number of Egyptian sites on the west bank of the Nile and proposed to reclaim and develop those areas, the spokesman said.

Sisi also took a look at radar images that pinpointed areas suitable for agricultural development, Youssef added.
