The document was adopted on June 5, 2018, the Ukrainian Grain Association (UGA) has said.

It not only authorizes the resumption of shipments of Ukrainian wheat but also introduces strict biosecurity control over grain imported from Ukraine.

In 2015, Vietnam temporarily stopped buying wheat from Ukraine over contamination with grain weevils. The infected grain was supplied with fake phytosanitary certificates.

Vietnam decided to resume imports of Ukrainian grain after Ukrainian-Vietnamese talks, UGA said.

In particular, delegates of the Republic of Vietnam visited Ukraine in April 2018 to learn about Ukraine's biosecurity procedures for wheat shipped abroad.

As UNIAN reported, wheat exports from Ukraine from the beginning of the 2017-2018 marketing year have totaled 16.1 million tonnes.
