Ethiopia issues tender to buy 400,000 tonnes wheat
The Ethiopian government has issued an international tender to buy about 400,000 tonnes of milling wheat, European traders said on Wednesday.
The tender deadline is Jan. 31.
Shipment is two months after the contract award, traders said.
Ethiopia is still feeling the impact of a continued drought that devastated farms in some regions.
The country has a large wheat import programme to cool domestic prices but has struggled to get some purchases completed because of contractual disagreements.
Its last reported wheat tender was in September 2018.
