CAIRO, July 5 (Reuters) - Ukrainian grain trading company Nibulon is to invest $2 billion to build new grain silos and transportation barges in Egypt’s Nile Delta region, the Egyptian supply ministry said on Sunday.
The silos would be erected on two sites near the Alexandria and Damietta ports, and 20 barges would be built each with a capacity to transport 2,000 tonnes of grains along the river, the ministry said in a statement
The first phase of the investment, under a recent agreement, would begin in the next two years, it said, without elaborating. (Reporting by John Davison, Ahmed Tolba. Editing by Jane Merriman)
