Egypt approves India as wheat supplier: Russia-Ukraine war has worsened the condition of markets around the world. From the stock market to the bullion market, investors are scared. But in the meantime there is good news for India. India will get the benefit of this war. In fact, Egypt, the country that imports the most wheat from Russia and Ukraine, has now approved wheat imports from India.
Big advantage for India between Russia-Ukraine war
Significantly, both the countries Russia and Ukraine are major exporters of wheat. Earlier in 2020, Egypt imported wheat worth $ 1.8 billion from Russia and $ 610.8 million from Ukraine. But in the meantime, the war that broke out between the two countries has changed the situation. Now the alternative of Egypt, Russia and Ukraine is increasing towards India. Egypt wants to import 1 million tonnes of wheat from India and will need 2,40,000 tonnes in April. For this now Egypt has also talked to India.
