Egypt buys French wheat
The Egyptian government's main wheat buying agency said it had bought 60,000 tonnes of US soft white wheat and 60,000 tonnes of French milling wheat for April 15-30 shipment.

Said el-Hefny, vice-chairman of the General Authority for Supply Commodities (GASC), said he had paid $132.18/tonne for the US wheat from Columbia Grain and $137.50/tonne for the French wheat from Lecureur. Both prices were FOB.

GASC on Wednesday tendered for 55,000 to 60,000 tonnes of US, French, Canadian and/or Australian wheat for shipment between April 15 and 30. It also tendered for 30,000 to 60,000 tonnes of Russian and/or U.K. milling wheat of ukp or uks type for the same shipment period.

Including Thursday's purchase, GASC has bought 3.985 million tonnes of wheat since July, which is the start of Egypt's financial year.

In the 2004/05 financial year, GASC bought at least 5.56 million tonnes, mostly at international tender. Egypt, with a population of more than 72 million, is one of the world's biggest wheat importers
