The Belarusian government will keep tab on buckwheat prices in order to avoid dramatic rises, Belarus Deputy Prime Minister Vladimir Dvornik announced after he had delivered a report on completing this year’s harvesting campaign and on fulfilling the instructions to increase and diversify the export to the head of state.
“Buckwheat prices are an issue as Russia procured 20% less buckwheat in 2019 than in recent years,” Vladimir Dvornik noted.
“Belarus has some remains of last year’s harvest in stock in addition to this year’s harvest. The government will monitor the situation with buckwheat in order to avoid surges in prices,” he added. V
In recent years, buckwheat prices in the Belarusian market have been a bit higher that in Russia, but they are roughly the same now, Vladimir Dvornik added.
“This is why I do not think that there will be some dramatic price increases and issues with this product. However, the government will keep track of the situation,” he said. (BelTA/Business World Magazine)
