In a press release during his visit to the US, Abdel-Nour shed light on the great opportunities awaiting companies and investors in Egypt in the coming period. He hoped that Egypt will achieve a partnership with US companies in oil and natural gas fields.

Earlier, Abdel-Nour met with US Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and US Trade Representative Michael Froman to discuss trade exchange. He also met with members of the American Chamber of Commerce and officials of the World Bank to tackle boosting economic and commercial relations.

During his talks with Tom Vilsack, Abdel-Nour tackled the importance of offering more Egyptian products to the US markets, topped by citrus, string beans and Mango.

In addition, an agreement had been reached between Vilsack and Abdel-Nour on inviting agriculture ministry's experts to visit the USA in next August to get acquainted with means of treating oranges and tangerine fruits to overcome the fruit flies before entering the US markets. The citrus would be exported to the USA in autumn 2014.
