Agricultural Statistics of Egypt, 1970-84

Egypt is one of the world's largest foad importers, annually consuming over $4 billion worth of imported agricultural commodities to feed a population of 48 million. The import bill is growing rapidly as population and consumption ~rowth rates exceed that of agricultural production. Egypt was the 10th largest market for U.S. agricultural exports in 1984. The U.S. market share is about 25 percent, with wheat, wheat flour, and corn making up the bulk of the shipments. This report consists of 90 data tables documenting the Egyptian market. The areas covered include population and labor force, economic indicators, farm characteristics, land use and cropping patterns, commodities, agricultural inputs, per capita consumption, food imports and agricultural trade, agricultural exports, agricultural prices, and other topics. This report is intended as an English-language reference source of use to commodity exporters dealing with the Egyptian market, Government agency planners working with Egypt, and researchers studying the Egyptian economy.
