United Arab Emirates: GCC-4 US Agricultural and Related Product Export Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   TC2021-0007

Overall U.S. agricultural and related product exports to the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar, and Kuwait (GCC-4) are higher by 3 percent from January to March 2021 compared to the same time last year. The increase was mostly driven by large bulk commodity purchases as GCC-4 governments moved to secure additional stocks due to food security concerns. Overall exports remain muted due to a weak recovery in the United Arab Emirates, and no recovery in exports to Qatar and Oman.
