WASHINGTON, D.C., U.S. — Tunisia’s Office of Cereals has announced earlier that it will begin to privatize wheat imports beginning in 2003.
Market liberalization will increase long-term prospects for imports of quality wheat and in response to this opportunity; U.S. Wheat says it will open an office in Tunis this year.
The new office will be under the direction of George Galasso, the regional director who currently runs the USW North Africa office in Morocco.
The Tunisia office will be staffed by USW milling expert, Peter Lloyd, and by Salah Mahjoub, an agriculture and trade expert with extensive experience working with industry and government officials in his home country of Tunisia.
