Description
Opened an international tender for the supply of at least 100 000 tonnes of rice, for prompt delivery. The tender followed official statements that would have the Egyptian Government import 500 000 tonnes of rice, in order to quell inflationary pressure and build a strategic reserve converging up to six months of domestic consumption.
