Historical Background

The release of the Cabinet Decree, to establish a National Committee to liaise with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in September 1948, followed by the establishment of its office in October 1950, has been the foundation to commence real cooperation between the Egyptian Ministry of Agriculture and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and in the same time the basis upon which the Central Administration for Foreign Agricultural Relations has been established with its present form.
The affiliation of the National Committee Office for FAO Liaison has been transferred to the Ministry's Undersecretary for Agricultural Resources and the General Secretary of the Committee on 14 December 1951, where its task has remained confined only to liaison affairs with FAO due to the fact that a Section for Foreign Communication has already been existed under the supervision of the Department of Agricultural Economics and Statistics at that time.
On April 20, 1957, the Foreign Communication Section was replaced by the Foreign Relations Section, which it was entrusted to carry out the entire foreign agricultural contacts following the rules of the Republic Decree No. 368 in 1957.
The organizational structure of the Foreign Relations Section has been elevated into the Observatory of Foreign Agricultural Relations according to the Ministerial Decree issued in August 7, 1963.
In 1974, the Central Agency for Organization and Management has issued a decree to elevate the organizational structure of the Observatory of Foreign Agricultural Relations into a General Department, based on its mandate, labor burden, and level of responsibility.
In August 1975, HE Minister of Agriculture has ratified the decision taken by the Ministry's undersecretaries' Council to elevate the organizational structure of the Foreign Agricultural Relations Observatory into a General Department, and in April 1976, the Ministerial Decree has been issued in that respect.
On the 17th of October 1979, the Ministerial Decree No. 578 has been issued concerning the organizational structure of the Ministry of Agriculture, specifying the general structure of the Ministry with 12 Undersecretaries, among which the Undersecretary of Foreign Agricultural Relations was designated. On the 28th of April 1980, the General Departments of the Undersecretary of Foreign Agricultural Relations have been designated, according to the Ministerial Decree No. 199.
