  • History
    The Agricultural Economics Research Institute (AERI) was established in 1943 as the Agricultural Economics Department. In 1949, it became the Agricultural Economics and Legislation Department and consisted of agricultural foreign relations, statistics, agricultural economics, and legislation divisions. In 1958, it became a research department for agricultural economics and statistics. With the increasing demand for the Ministry of Agriculture′s services during the 1960s, the department was organized into eight divisions. When the ARC was established in 1971, AERI became one of its first institutes responsible, together with other institutes, to improve the technologies and services available to Egyptian agriculture through research and ex- tension.
