Iraq issues tenders for 30,000 tonnes rice, 50,000 tonnes wheat

wheat-productionBAGHDAD: Iraq issued a tender on Monday to buy a minimum of 30,000 tonnes of rice with origins from the United States, Uruguay, Thailand and Argentina, sources at the Iraqi trade ministry said.


Iraq also reissued a tender to buy at least 50,000 tonnes of wheat with origins from the United States, Canada, Australia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Romania and Germany, the sources said.


The closing date for the rice tender is on Nov. 19, and Nov. 18 for the wheat and offers must be valid until Nov. 23, and Nov. 22, respectively.
