The government of Romania suspended most exports of grains, oilseeds and related products to markets outside of the Eu, according to a report from the Foreign Agricultural Service of the Us Department of Agriculture. Deliveries can continue within the Eu as long as trading partners guarantee that the commodities will be consumed within the Eu and not re-exported. The government made the decision due to the coronavirus and growing concerns about the winter crop’s impact from drought. «The objective is to ensure Romanian food security, amid increasing fears that grain and oilseed stocks will run low due to exports», the Usda said. Romania usually exports a large percentage of its grain and oilseed crops. In 2019-20, exports were expected to increase 1.4% from its record exports of 12.9 million tonnes in 2018-19.
