The European Commission expressed disapproval at Romania’s decision to ban agriculture exports and said it’s assessing how the move could impact trade within the single market.

Romania issued a ban this week on sales of goods, including wheat, corn and sugar, outside the European Union. The Romanian government plans to still allow food products to be sold within the EU, but buyers must prove it’s not intended for export.
