French grain export lobby eyes Iraq

Reuters (Mar. 15, 2011) | France’s grain export lobby has invited an Iraqi delegation to visit the country as it tries to break into what has become one of the world’s major wheat import markets, the lobby’s head said on Tuesday. The move followed the signing last year of a letter of intent between France Export Cereales and Iraq’s grain board on establishing cooperation, Jean-Pierre Langlois-Berthelot, president of the export lobby, told the Reuters Global Food and Agriculture Summit.
