Romania: Romania Suspends Grain and Oilseed Exports to Non-EU Markets

On April 9, the Government of Romania (GOR) suspended most exports of grains, oilseeds, and related products as of April 10, 2020, to non-European Union (EU) markets. According to the new regulation, inter-EU deliveries can continue, although EU trading partners must guarantee that Romanian-origin commodities will be consumed within the EU and not re-exported. The COVID 19 crisis is driving this reaction, amid growing concerns about Romania’s winter crop, which looks to be hit by drought conditions. Post understands Romania will not limit imports of grains and oilseeds from outside of the EU.
