Zam­bia ex­port ban

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

ZAM­BIA will main­tain a ban on the ex­port of maize un­til it se­cures 500 000 tons of maize in its strate­gic re­serves, Agri­cul­ture Min­is­ter Dora Siliya said.

The coun­try had planned to lift the ban at the end of last month, it said in May.

The avail­able maize stocks were enough to last Zam­bia be­yond the next har­vest in April but the gov­ern­ment would only re­sume ex­ports af­ter it had bought an ad­di­tional 187 000 tons.
