Historically Egypt has always seen itself as a farming nation. The Agriculture Sector provides livelihoods for 55%of the population and directly employs about 30% of the labor force. The sector accounts for about 20% of total exports and foreign exchange earnings. However, Egypt imports about 40% of its food requirements and incurs a total food import bill of $2.5 billion per year.
