Belarusian Potash Co., the trading venture of OAO Uralkali (URKA) and Belaruskali, plans to increase potash sales to Myanmar by about 13-fold to 20,000 metric tons next year as demand for the crop nutrient rises.
Sales this year to the Asian country will be about 1,500 tons, Filipp Gritskov, a spokesman in Minsk for the trader known as BPC, said by telephone today.
Myanmar’s potash purchases from BPC may rise to as much as 100,000 tons in future, the Minsk-based Belta newswire reported earlier, citing an official from Awba Group, the trading venture’s partner in the Asian country.
