Market Monitor February 2020

06 Feb 2020

Global food markets are in the midst of an exceptionally eventful period in terms of both scale and scope. The recently reached US-China “phase-one” trade and investment agreement has fuelled expectations of a resumption of large US exports of agricultural products to China. However, continued geopolitical tensions and the rapid spread of a new coronavirus may impact many markets, agriculture included. For AMIS crops, global markets are likely to endure even more uncertainty because of unpredictable climatic conditions and extreme weather.

The next AMIS Market Monitor will be released on 5 March 2020.
