Friday, 11 03 2017, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: Egypt
The head of the Division of poultry in the Cairo Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Abdul-Aziz al-Sayed asked the insurance companies to tackle the poultry sector, which plays an important role in Egypt and achieves self-sufficiency for the citizens.
Moreover, Mr. al-Sayed added in statements made to “Dostor” that insurance companies do not offer the policies that meet the needs of the poultry sector since they only insure fire and accident without insuring the capital represented by the poultry against the risks of sickness or theft. He indicated that the number of farms reached 47 thousand and 500 registered farms and approximately 40% in the parallel sector.
