Agriculture Minister Salah Abdel Momen held Monday a meeting
with Italy's Ambassador to Egypt Maurizio Massari on agricultural cooperation.
The meeting reviewed the currently-implemented projects in Egypt along with reviewing
the third batch of an Italian debt swap program, as about 50\% of the program was
allocated for agricultural projects.
The Italian government has turned 100 million dollars of Egypt's debts into grants
to fund development and infrastructure projects in Egypt.
