Iran to export wheat to Indonesia

Iran plans to export surplus wheat to Indonesia, said the Islamic Republic's commercial attaché to Indonesia.

Anvar Kamari added that Indonesia is expected to become the world's biggest wheat importer in 2018, importing 12.5 million tons of the staple agricultural product, Trend News Agency reported.

The southeastern Asian country can be considered as the main destination of Iran's wheat exports, given the fact that the Islamic Republic plans to increase wheat production, Kamari said.

Iran saw a considerable surge in wheat output in the year which started on March 21, 2017.

Australia, Canada, Ukraine and the US are main suppliers of cereals, including wheat, to Indonesia.

Some 276,410 tons of wheat worth of $70.78 million was exported in the nine months to December 20, 2017.

The value of wheat exports during this period increased by 758 percent.

Indonesia was 10th target of Iran's non-oil exports during the 10 months to January 20, according to the latest data.

The country imported goods worth $465 million from Iran, registering a huge rise of 267 percent year-on-year.

Iran's exports to the Asian country in the 10-month period amounted to 1.4 million tons which is 98 percent more year-on-year.
