Iraq plans to import 4.5 mln T wheat in 2008
Confirmed plans for Australia to once again become a major supplier of wheat to Iraq, one of the world's largest importers. The United States and Canada are currently the biggest suppliers.

Iraq suspended dealings with the Australian Wheat Board (AWB) in February 2006 as an Australian judicial inquiry began into allegations that AWB paid $222 million to the former government of Saddam Hussein in order to secure sales.

Australian wheat officials told a visiting Iraqi delegation in October that they hoped to be able to start selling Iraq one or two carges as early as mid-2008.

Iraq tendered for 3 million tonnes in 2007 but only 2.5 million was delivered because of what traders said was partly due to Baghdad's slowness in chartering ships.

The government was pushing ahead with plans to phase out the state's decades-old monopoly over the import of wheat and rice and allow the private sector to enter the market to improve deliveries.
