Russia to Remove Wheat Export Duty


The Russian government has announced that it will lift the export duty on wheat shipments from 15 May, Reuters reports. The duty, imposed on 1 February, was initially set to run until 30 June and amounted to 15% of the customs price plus �7.50 to a minimum of �35.00/t. It was introduced as part of a package of measures intended to reduce exports which had surged in the face of a rapidly depreciating Rouble.
