According to port data, in May 2018 Romanian traders shipped 228.5 KMT of corn, which was 128% higher than in May 2017. Key buyers of the reporting month were: Iran – 102 KMT, Spain – 47 KMT, Turkey – 34.6 KMT, UK – 30 KMT.

Last season Egypt was number one on that list (332.9 KMT over September-May 2016/17), but over the reporting period the country was not among the importers of Romanian corn.
