Description
Introduced measures to support local wheat output. These measures include a flat rate subsidy of MAD 10 per 100 kg (USD 10.7 per tonne) of soft wheat to millers who opt for local wheat instead of imports and a storage premium of MAD 2 per 100 kg (USD 2.01 per tonne) per night to storage agencies. The measures go into effect for wheat locally harvested between 15 May and 15 October.
