Cote d'Ivoire: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Milled rice production for MY 2020/21 is projected at 1.4 million metric tons (MMT). Post projects MY 2020/21 imports at 1.3 MMT, unchanged from the MY 2019/20 estimate. Domestic production for MY 2019/20 is revised downward to 1.25 MMT due to multiple pressures upon both area and yield. Despite production challenges and fears of export restrictive policies in major supplier countries, Post estimates total rice imports to remain stable at 1.3 MMT in 19/20. Overall stock levels are reported to be healthy in the event of any major supply disruptions. The national strategy for rice, as well as its primary authorities over the sector, underwent several changes over the past year. An official production target of 2.0 MMT, originally planned for 2020, has been moved back to 2025.
