Egypt says it will get goods from Sudan in return for electric supply

Egyptian government on Tuesday said it’s ready to complete electricity linkage with Sudan by end of March with a maximum of 400 megawatts in exchange for goods in kind.
“It’s possible to get goods and crops in return for value of electric connection, such as meat, soybeans and sunflower” Egyptian minister of Supply was quoted as saying.
Spokesman of Egyptian cabinet reportedly directed the concerned bodies to quickly finish technical works pertaining to electric linkage and negotiation with Sudanese side to ink an agreement in this regard.
The Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC) postponed the first phase of 100MW electricity interconnection project with Sudan to march due to a delay in the implementation of the project by the Indian mufti-national construction firm, Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T)
