The output of the Belarusian potash manufacturer OAO Belaruskali is expected to be close to 10 million tonnes in 2017, BelTA learned from Ivan Golovaty, the company's Director General, member of the International Affairs and National Security Commission of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus.
According to the source, this year's output of Belaruskali will be close to 10 million tonnes, which is on par with last year's.
Speaking about export volumes, the executive noted that it is projected at 9-9.5 million tonnes.
China is one of the key importers of Belaruskali's products. China buys 1.5-2 million tonnes of fertilizers every year. It is difficult to talk about this year's deliveries for now because negotiations with a consortium of Chinese companies (Sinochem, CNAMPGC, and CNOOC) are still in progress.
