PEKING/MOSCOW. Getting raw pine nuts from Russia continues to cause problems for Chinese suppliers. Solution approaches like...

... the transfer of goods at the Russian-Chinese border is not as easy as it should be. This is not only due to the prevailing quarantine regulations, but also to the imposed forced holidays for the Russian population, which are still valid until 11 May.

As Mayor Sergei Sobjanin announced at an online meeting with President Vladimir Putin last Wednesday, industrial enterprises and construction companies in Moscow will be allowed to resume operations from 12 May. In other sectors, a gradual easing is planned as soon as the situation around the Covid-19 virus stabilizes. The regions will be allowed to decide individually on a gradual relaxation after 12 May.

No shipments before June

The Chinese pine nut trade still has to wait and see. However, exporters hope to be able to submit the first offers for shipments in June as early as next week.
