Romania exported 119.3 KMT of sunseed by sea in November, or slightly more than in the same month last season (112.34 KMT). However, September-November exports of this commodity were down 12.5% year-on-year: 548.38 KMT against 626.6 KMT in September-November 2016/17, reports UkrAgroConsult.

As before, the top buyer of Romanian sunseed is France, which reduced purchases by 32% against September-November 2016/17 due to its own rich crop. The Netherlands and Spain decreased imports by 20% and 38%, respectively. Pakistan cut imports by half to 41 KMT.
