Vietnam began importing Russian wheat


RosSelkhozNadzor (Russia’s Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance) reported last week that 64.5 KMT of Russian export corn left the Novorossiysk port for Vietnam.  

Vietnam imported 66 KMT of Russian wheat last week, reports UkrAgroConsult. A vessel with an export wheat parcel bound for Vietnam has left the Novorossiysk port.

As a reminder, Russia is included in the permanent register of exporters of plant products, including grain and processed grain products, as required by Vietnamese law.

UkrAgroConsult points out that last time Vietnam imported Russian wheat in July 2014 (16.7 KMT). In the past, this country has never been among important destination markets for Russian wheat and has annually imported at most 30 KMT of wheat from Russia in the past 15 years.

Will Russia maintain leadership in the export market in future, given the current trend of port industry development? UkrAgroConsult is going to answer this question in a new market study “Russia: Record crop vs Grain-handling capacities deficit”.
