Cote d'Ivoire: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   IV2021-0002

Despite ambitious national targets towards self-sufficiency in rice by 2025, and becoming a regional exporter by 2030, the current campaign in Côte d’Ivoire is one characterized by a production drop and trade slowdown, which has tightened overall supply in the country. Milled rice production for upcoming market year (MY) 2021/22 is projected at 1.2 million metric tons (MMT). Post projects MY 2021/22 imports at 1.1 MMT, which indicates a continued stabilization of import pace for a country that has consistently been a global top-five importer in recent years. The Port of Abidjan remains a significant transshipment point for milled rice to other markets in the region. Domestic production struggles and softening milled rice imports open up opportunities for U.S. rough rice exports to supplement an expanding domestic milling sector.
