The study estimated Almost Ideal demand system (AIDS), according to seemingly unrelated regression procedure, also the assumptions of adding up, homogeneity, symmetry, and negativity, were included as restrictions in the system. The Data of the study covered the period (1985-2003). Results of the study indicated an increase in quantities exported and the domestic resource costs of potatoes, and also a decrease trend in the real price export of potatoes, while the other variables hold constant and insignificantly statistics. The results of the AIDS model in the British market showed Holland, France, and Spain are the most competitive market to the Egyptian market in England imports of potatoes especially the France market. The results of the AIDS model in the German market showed France, Holland, and Denmark are the most competitive market to the Egyptian market in Germany imports of potatoes especially the France market.
