• Local rice remains relatively cheaper possibly leading to lower demand for imported rice especially in rural areas;

• Prices of gasoline continues to decline due to regular flow in the South eastern and central parts of Liberia

• Physical access to markets and flow of goods have also improved across the country as a result of road rehabilitation by the Government,

• Palm oil producers continue to experience favorable terms of trade and therefore improve food access.
