Kazakhstan increases wheat, flour export quotas for May

NUR-SULTAN, April 24 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan increased its wheat export quota for May to 250,000 tonnes, from 200,000 tonnes in April, and more than doubled the quota for wheat flour to 150,000 tonnes, Deputy Agriculture Minister Aidarkhan Saparov said on Friday.

He told a briefing that the Central Asian nation may abolish the quotas - introduced this month to ensure domestic supply amid a lockdown and border closures due to the coronavirus - in June. He said Kazakhstan planned to harvest at least as much grain this year as it did in 2019. (Reporting by Tamara Vaal Writing by Olzhas Auyezov; Editing by Susan Fenton)
