MINSK, 25 February. The Rosselkhoznadzor is ready to expand the list of regions from which the grain is exported to China. But you need to toughen state control over the quality of grain and to give priority to the implementation of the requirements of the importing country, not the rules of the internal market, told reporters the head of the Rosselkhoznadzor Sergey Dankvert.

“Yes (plan to expand). But it is not only the task of selhoznaloga. It is also a task of the regions themselves, and those who are engaged in crop production – to create the conditions under which they can fulfill Chinese demands,” he said.
According to Dankvert, in recent years has revealed serious problems with quality of grain, which goes from regions for export. “We will take measures up to that of the region not to release. If the grain is contaminated – because we have problem with China is not needed”, – said the head of Rosselkhoznadzor.
He noted the need to strengthen control over the elevators, where grain is stored. “Now we need to take action. But the complexity of that Grain Union lobbied always freedom, and in this total freedom has turned out so that there is no control over the elevators. And the requirements of the importing country we have to perform. How do I ensure these requirements, if I’m in the Elevator can go every three years? I can’t provide. This complexity, which require the publication of the normative documents”, – said Dankvert.
According to him, these changes should be that when the export of agricultural products become the priority requirements of the importing country, and not the rules established for the domestic market. “It deals with the export of products specific rule within the country is not valid – I have the requirements of the importing country to perform”, – said the head of Rosselkhoznadzor.
Certificates of quality of grain you want to restore
The Rosselkhoznadzor also proposed to abolish export duties on high quality wheat and to restore the certificates of quality of grain, making it a condition of the permit producers to export supplies, Dankvert said.
“If we want to export (grain – approx. ed.), we should change many things, including, for example, a certificate for quality. A number of countries the quality requirements of the show, and we all screamed – no quality check, this category of market. Oatmeal quality certificates, and as a result can not find the way out, what to do with the duty on grain”,- said Dankvert.
According to him, if the high quality (grain – approx. ed.) will be confirmed, it could be exported without customs duties. “The grain food, high quality, if you acknowledge this quality, then of course it must be sold abroad at a high price. This additional income for villagers and the extra revenue is certainly a big reason to levy duties there”, – said Dankvert.
