Grain Import Tender

MOSCOW () -- The Russian government plans to hold a tender, possibly in February, to select organizations to import grain in 1996, an Economics Ministry spokesman said Thursday.

The Russian government has said there will be no centralized imports of grain with state funds in 1996, but the spokesman said that under the terms of the tender, importers would have access to federal budget funds. Buying would be spread over a period of time, he said.
