Belarus imported 51,900 tons of products for animal feed in the first eleven months of 2009, a substantial decrease of 40.9% compared with the same period in 2008. This was higher than the 30.5% year-on-year fall in Belarus' total goods imports.


A breakdown of the feed import figures reveals that imports from countries within the Commonwealth of Independent States were 13.5% lower year-on-year at 12,500 tons, with imports from non-commonwealth states 46.3% lower year-on-year at 39,400 tons.
