Intercontinental International Real Estate Investment Company SA announced yesterday it has acquired a commercial building in Volos for 3.75 million euros. It said the building will be leased to B&F which owns the trademarks “BSB” and “Lynne.” The duration of the pre-agreed lease is 20 years and the transaction is expected to be completed by July. Alexander Tkachev said yesterday. Turkey has effectively put purchases of wheat, maize (corn) and sunflower from Russia on hold by imposing high import tariffs last month. Russian market players believe the move was in retaliation for Moscow’s decision not to restore a visa-free regime with Ankara and resume purchases of tomatoes after the two countries improved ties last year, having fallen out over the shooting down of a Russian fighter jet in 2015. “We do not plan to open the tomato market, (we) will support, above all, the domestic producers,” Tkachev said in an interview with Rossiya 24 TV yesterday.
