Egypt’s supplies minister Khaled Hanafi said his country would change the system it uses for domestic wheat procurement, starting from April 2016.


In a Reuters interview on Monday, Hanafi also said it was "very possible" that Egypt could import less than 4 million tonnes of wheat in 2015-16.


He added that Egypt would import vegetable oil from global markets without using middlemen or direct-order agreements.
