Chile shortens Russia grain buying process



Chile has largely simplified the grain import procedure from Russia, Sergei Dankvert, head of the Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision (Rosselkhoznadzor), told Itar-Tass from Santiago.


He noted that the Chilean side has decided that "the Russian wheat could be exported to Chile, accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate without an additional declaration, which was required earlier."


"As a result of analysis of our documents we have been allowed to supply grain without any additional declarations indicating the places where it was grown," Dankvert said. According to him, "It allows us to significantly increase the export of Russian grain."


Rosselkhoznadzor is a federal executive power body with the functions of control and supervision in the field of veterinary science. It establishes and lifts phytosanitary quarantine zones, controls the use of pesticides and agrochemicals, maintains soil fertility, etc., is responsible for reproduction and use of hunting resources and aquatic biological resources, it also performs the functions for the protection of the population from animal infectious diseases.


Sergei Dankvert stressed that the decision of the Chilean government, which has officially entered into force, has become the result of the work carried out by Rosselkhoznadzor and the Chilean Agriculture and Livestock Service.
