Kazakh wheat exports to Iran may rise to 1 MMT

11.04.2018

Iran may start stepping up grain imports from Kazakhstan in late April 2018 as drought is forecast in the country, reports UkrAgroConsult on the basis of Atameken Business Channel.

Iran has only established three options for bringing wheat from Russia and Kazakhstan to the country: swap-operation, transit shipments and temporary imports. However, Russian and Kazakh traders hope for drought predicted to hit Iran, as it may open this market. Its opening will allow boosting Kazakh wheat supplies from 500 KMT to 1 MMT a year.
