Egypt establishes 3 energy plants in Eritrea
CAIRO - 9 May 2018: Cabinet approved Wednesday establishing three energy plants in Eritrea, to generate electricity with a capacity of 4 megawatts, as part of the Egyptian initiative to develop Nile Basin countries.
The project will be implemented by the Arab Organization for Industrialization and the Authority for Development and Use of Renewable Energy with cost amount at $7 million.
The Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation announced last February the establishment of a joint Egyptian-Eritrean farm in Eritrea, the seventh such kind of farming projects to be built by Egypt in Africa.
The joint Egyptian farm, located in the Horn of Africa, aims to strengthen Egyptian-Eritrean ties particularly in the agriculture field and meet the needs of the Eritrean side in terms of producing various crops through transfer of Egypt's agricultural technology, Minister of Agriculture Dr Abdel Moneim el-Banna said Sunday.
He referred to directives by the Egyptian presidency to enhance cooperation with Africa, saying Egypt enjoys mutual historical relations and such development projects would help achieve the interests of African peoples.
Egypt has established similar farms in the Democratic Congo, Mali, Tanzania, Zambia, Niger and Togo.
