The Russian Grain Union will hold its XII International Grain Trading Conference on October 4–7 at the Holiday Inn in Baku, Azerbaijan, Report informs.

Organizers said the location was chosen because the country is a “pivotal link” between the grain markets of the Black Sea region, Asia, the Middle East, as well as its positioning as ‘the Grain Gates’ between the Islamic world and the countries of the Black Sea region.

Mid- and long-term trends in the development of grain production, investment support, and the mechanisms of financing grain production and trade are planned to be discussed at the conference.
