HIGHLIGHTS

  • World cereal production in 2014 is forecast to surpass last year’s record, boosting stocks to a 15-year high.

Wheat export prices strengthened in general, while rice quotations declined. Overall, however, cereal export prices persisted at levels below those of a year earlier, reflecting ample global supplies.

Yemen, one of the least developed countries in the world, is experiencing a complex and protracted crisis that has heavily affected its political and socio-economic stability and economic performance.
