Food production   To establish fruit cultivation in dry areas of Sri Lanka
The plan is to establish fruit cultivation in dry areas of Sri Lanka including the north and east.

There is also a possibility of applying Egypt's new technology and knowledge for agricultural development in the dry zone of Sri Lanka.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was drafted in 2010 for technological transfer between Sri Lanka and Egypt and the approval of the cabinet of ministers had been obtained for signing the same, but it was not materialized due to unavoidable reasons.

The new MoU has now been drafted by further developing the previous understanding through which both parties agree to exchange knowledge and experience on crop production, food processing, advertising, marketing and agricultural mechanism.
