Ethiopia issues new tender for 35,000 T wheat
Addis Ababa, July 10 (WIC) - The Ethiopian government has issued a new international tender to purchase 35,000 tonnes of milling wheat, European traders said on Tuesday.
Bidding deadline is July 19. Origin was optional, traders said.
The grain is for the country's strategic reserves and finance is being provided by the World Bank's International Development Association and other aid organisations, traders said.
Ethiopia has issued a series of wheat tenders this year which have all been financed by international aid agencies.
A tender for 30,000 tonnes was issued on June 18 and closed on July 3. A tender for 35,000 tonnes was issued on June 11 and closed on June 19.
It was unclear whether purchases had been made.
On May 25, the Ethiopian government purchased 35,000 tonnes of optional-origin milling wheat in a tender which closed on May 15.
Shipment in Ethiopian tenders is one month after opening of a letter of credit on the purchase, dealers said. (Reuters)
