Egypt has opened two markets for the country's agricultural exports of citrus and grapes in Uruguay, Minister of Agriculture and Land Reclamation Ezz el Din Abu Steit announced on Thursday.

The step comes after negotiations and talks that were held between officials at Egypt's agricultural quarantine department and their Uruguayan counterparts about the measures recently taken by Cairo to maintain the quality of its agricultural exports, the minister noted.
