Egypt cancels wheat tender over virus supply risks


The fallout from the coronavirus crisis is starting to upend wheat tenders in the world’s top importer.
In a rare move, Egypt cancelled a tender within hours of announcing it, without giving a reason. The state buyer added a new clause requiring suppliers to replace any cargoes affected by virus-related restrictions with wheat from elsewhere, and bear the difference in costs, according to people familiar with the matter.
The cancellation of the tender — which would have been Egypt’s first since February — highlights how the pandemic is threatening trade flows.
