India and Egypt have discussed measures to enhance bilateral trade and supply of agricultural products. India’s Ambassador Sanjay Bhattacharyya met with Ali El-Sayed Moselhi, Egyptian Minister of Supply and Internal Trade, on Tuesday and discussed means of enhancing the bilateral trade and finding new opportunities for collaboration. The meeting was also attended by P K Das, Director-Marketing (The State Trading Corporation of India Ltd) and SP Kar, Executive Director (Food Corporation of India).
