Kazakhstan. Opening of new transport corridor for wheat supply to Vietnam
The first consignment of Kazakh grain departed from the port of Lianyungang (China) to the port of Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam). The train containing 32 containers loaded with 700 MT of Kazakh grain departed from Zhaltyr station (Kazakhstan) in late January, reports UkrAgroConsult.
The main target is not only to supply the cargo to Vietnam, but also to test the delivery route to Southeast Asia through China. Thus, Kazakhstan cannot only export its own commodities, but also supply goods of other countries of the Eurasian Economic Community (EAEC) to Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries along “Kazakhstan-Lianyungang (PRC) – Vietnam” transport corridor.
The company in Vietnam which purchased this wheat lot (720 MT) intends to test grain quality and increase the imports of Kazakh wheat if results are good.
