The member of parliament Mohamed Badrawy, who is currently visiting Sudan, said that the Egyptian-Sudanese economic relations are not up to the "strategic and historic" ties binding the two nations.
The trade exchange between the two countries did not exceed 850 million dollars, he noted.
These remarks came during a speech he delivered in the Sudanese Journalists Union headquarters on Saturday.
Badrawy underlined also that Egypt will import meat from Sudan with one billion dollars as his country imports meat with a total cost of five billion dollars annually.
He further underscored that he will seek to form a permanent technical committee for Sudan in the Egyptian parliament which targets increasing trade exchange between the two nations, adding that he hopes that it exceeds three billion dollars during the coming two years.
