Egypt - Sugar subsector study (English)

Fundamental measures for liberalizing the agriculture sector have been implemented by the Government of Egypt over the past several years. This report provides a basis for further deepening the reform process in the country with respect to the sugar subsector (discusses macroeconomic sector reform, Egyptian economy, efficiency measures of sugar production) and promotes a more efficient use of the country's key resources. It has been prepared in cooperation with the Government, which sought Bank assistance in carrying out a study of the subsector within the context of the ongoing economic reform and structural adjustment program.
