Projected Increase in Egypt's Export of Cut Flowers and Ornamental Plants

The plant and flower industry is happily blooming this year.

Head of Agriculture Professions Union, Sayed Khalefa stated on Sunday that Egypt’s total export of cut flowers and ornamental plants has already reached $35 million this year and is only projected to increase, according to Egypt Independent.

Speaking to Al-Masry Al-Youm, Khalefa said that the higher production of cut flowers and ornamental plants gives Egypt a competitive advantage in global markets, and helps create job opportunities for young Egyptians. He also stressed that small farmers, who produce 80 percent of exports, need more help, calling for the easing of export operations, as well as the unification of Egyptian standard specifications with global ones, which will allow to increase exports.

Last year, Egypt exported $45 million in cut flowers and plants according to Daily News Egypt, and Khalefa is confident that we will surpass this number this year. The plants are used both for decorative and medical purposes.
