Cabinet of Ministers plans to limit grain export since July 1

The Cabinet of Ministers is readying a resolution on immediate action of temporary limitation of grain export during the period of forming the reserve stock of grains, Vice Prime Minister Viktor Slauta said.

As he specified the restriction might start since July 1, the beginning of the new marketing year.

The Govt's moves are directed at forming the grain reserve as soon as possible to prevent the past year situation, when grain stock "was wasted and we had to introduce quotas".

Since June1 quotas for grain export are supposed to be canceled.
