SHARM EL SHEIKH, EGYPT — The Russian Grain Union said on April 4 that it has moved up the date for the 6th International Grain Trading Conference from April 2012 to October 2011.

The event, originally scheduled for April 5-7, 2010, was moved back a year due to the unrest in Egypt. Now, the Russian Grain Union said after lengthy negotiations with the Egyptian business community and evaluation of the political environment by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, the group decided to move the event back to 2011.
