Export ban

On 7 October 2010, the government of Tanzania announced the removal of an export ban on designated food products. According to consistent press reports, restrictions on the commercial export of maize grain and flour have been eased.
The food export restrictions had been put in place in January 2009 in order to stabilise domestic market after a period of drought and rising world market prices.
 
In order to reveal the bilateral trading partners abovethe GTA threshold of 1'000'000 USD per year and per affected tariff line, one needs to find the year prior to the ban (2008 in this case).
