Additional factor of pressure on the price of Russian wheat will become the new payment system acquired by the Egyptian state operator GASC to tender grain. Next tender the payments will be made by opening letters of credit on sight (payment under a letter of credit is made without a grace period immediately after the submission of documents for the shipment) that will reduce the purchase price of GASC 5-6 $/t. In recent times the letters of credit under the supply of wheat has guaranteed payment only for 180 days, limiting the number of people willing to participate in the auction and increased the costs.
