KIEV, UKRAINE — During its Jan. 11 meeting, the Ukrainian commission of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine completely distributed quotas for grain exports among Ukrainian enterprises-exporters, said the press-service of the Ukrainian Agrarian Confederation on Jan. 12.

According to Sergey Stoyanov, the general director of the Ukrainian Agrarian Confederation, the representative of the Ukrainian Agrarian Confederation did not vote because other commission members did not support prolonging applications until Jan. 14.

A range of enterprises were not able to receive the conclusion issued by the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food during the period of Jan. 4-6.

In the next several days, the government will introduce an offer for additional grain export quota distribution, almost all surplus carry-over stocks.

According to data of the Ukrainian Agrarian Confederation, the surplus (excluding just distributed volumes) is estimated at the level of 5 million tonnes. As of Jan. 7, grain carry-over stocks will also total the level of 5 million tonnes, which is almost at the level of Jan. 7, 2010 carry-over stocks. That is without taking into account the possible incoming balance of the 2010-11 grain harvest.
