Are we living in a communist country? The objective of any business is to achieve the highest returns. To have the state artificially lower the domestic sale price is ridiculous- watch local operators buy low and then export at a quick profit. This is a renewable resource that has been well managed by the participants. Apply this policy of nationalisation to other community-owned resources such as Iron ore, gold, gas etc and then watch hell break loose from the all-powerful multinationals who fund our political parties.
