MOSCOW, May 26. /TASS/. Grain protective duties will not be used in the nearest ten years, Russian Minister of Agriculture Alexander Tkachev said on Tuesday at a meeting with foreign agribusiness investors.
"Duties took their toll and we canceled them one month in advance. I hope no crises will take place in the nearest ten years, the grain market will be competitive, and we will rely upon the market prices," the minister said.
The wheat price level of 14,000 rubles ($278.0) a ton was "unfair" and formed because of high exchange rate differences, Tkachev said. "No obstacles for the export exist at present," the minister added.
Russia will be able to strengthen its positions as the grain exporter on the account of the domestic output growth, the minister said. "110-120 mln tons is absolutely real," he added.
