During January-July of this year, 429 thousand 806.11 tons of wheat worth 154 million 660 thousand US dollars were imported to Azerbaijan.
According to the calculations made by "APA-Economics" based on the report of the State Customs Committee, compared to the corresponding period of last year, the value of wheat imported into the country increased by 49%, and the volume increased by 5.1%.
It should be noted that the sharp increase in the value of wheat relative to the volume was due to its increase in price on the world market.
So, if the average price of each ton of wheat imported to Azerbaijan in seven months of last year was 253.8 dollars, this figure increased to 359.8 dollars in the same period of this year.
It should be recalled that wheat import during seven months of this year was equal to 1.65% of the total import of Azerbaijan.
