24.04.2018

Over September-March 2017/18 Romania increased corn exports through ports to 2.6 MMT (+36% y/y), which already exceeded total exports of last season - 2350 KMT, reports UkrAgroConsult. In March 2018 Romanian traders shipped 295 KMT of corn, which was more than 3 times compared to March 2017.

Spain continues to remain the largest importer of Romanian corn this season. Over September-March 2017/18 Spanish imports of corn reached 870 KMT (about 300 KMT over the whole last season). Last season Egypt was number one on that list (332.9 KMT over September-March 2016/17), but over the reporting period the country was not among the importers of Romanian corn, UkrAgroConsult notes.

Second largest buyer is Italy, which imported seven times more corn from Romania. Turkish increased considerably imports of Romanian corn. Higher import activity is seen from Lebanon and Portugal.
