Egypt firms seek financing deals for US wheat
WASHINGTON , Officials of three major Egyptian wheat-buying and flour-milling companies are in the United States this week discussing new financing arrangements with private banks and the US Department of Agriculture to facilitate wheat purchases.
Meeting with reporters at the start of a two-week tour that will include a look at wheat-producing regions and port facilities, the officials said they would like to resume vigorous purchases of American wheat, up to 3 million tonnes this marketing year, which runs through May.
The United States, France and Australia are typically large sellers of wheat to Egypt. But drought devastated North American and Australian wheat crops last year, bringing higher prices. Egypt turned to cheap Black Sea wheat to fulfil much of its needs.
Now, with a robust US wheat crop this year, Egypt is interested in returning to the American market to meet import needs, the Egyptian grain-buyers said.
Abou Zeid Abou-Zeid, chairman of Middle and West Delta Flour Mills Co in Tanta, Egypt, told reporters his firm was mostly interested in buying hard red winter and spring wheat's from the United States.
