BMI View: We expect Zimbabwe to remain a net corn importer over the longer term. Over the next five

years, we expect production of the grain to demonstrate moderate growth, although production will remain

well below the totals seen in the early 2000s and much of the growth will be in the form of a recovery. We

are more optimistic regarding the sugar sector, where access to key markets and potential for productivity

improvements will drive production over the long term. Although we forecast a domestic sugar market

surplus, the sector remains below potential and our forecasts are relatively subdued despite our

expectations for higher average prices than current levels in the coming years.

Key Forecasts

? Corn production to 2019/20: 83% on the 2015/16 level to 919,000 tonnes. We project relatively strong

growth over the long term, but the country will remain a net importer, as almost all of this growth is due

to base effects.

? Sugar production to 2019/20: 11% on the 2015/16 level to 459,000 tonnes. An overall improvement in

sugarcane yields, greater efficiency of mills and long-term access to export markets will be key drivers of

production growth.

? 2016 real GDP growth: 0.7%, up from -1.4% in 2015, forecast to average 3.6% between 2016 and

2020.

? 2016 consumer price deflation: 1.4% annual average (compared to -2.4% in 2015).

    Published: 28-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 88
    BMI View: We believe that grains production growth over the next five years will slow relative to the preceding five. Soybean production will outpace that of corn, as lower production costs for soybean relative to corn will make the commodity more attractive to grow. However, we see comparatively limited growth out to 2019/20 given the scarcity of area available for expansion, as well as high import costs for fertilisers. We hold a more positive view on the sugar industry......

    BMI View: We have not made significant revisions to our forecast outlook in this Q4 2016 quarterly update. We hold the view that cocoa remains Cameroon's most important cash crop. We hold a positive view on the country's cocoa production as it has ample room for growth and an increasingly stable access to export markets. Over the remainder of our forecast period to 2019/20, we believe improved production techniques will give cocoa farmers new opportunities to sell greater......

    BMI View: Colombia's agribusiness sector is being held back by a number of deep structural challenges including the lingering consequences of internal armed conflict, structural inefficiencies, low competitiveness and poor policy choices. As a result, area cultivated and yields have stagnated over the past decade. However, after several decades of disappointing growth in Colombia's agribusiness sector, the outlook for production and exports is brightening. The efforts mad......

    BMI View: Malaysia's agribusiness sector is experiencing challenging times, as palm oil industry - its most emblematic sector - is undermined by low prices and growing structural challenges. The cocoa sector is in an even worse position, suffering a severe decline after the stellar performance of the 1990s. The cocoa processing sector faces increasing competition from Indonesia and is losing market share at a fast pace. The medium-term outlook is brighter, amid strong gro......

    BMI View: In the short term, we expect the severe drought afflicting the country in 2016 to reduce output dramatically for the grains and sugar sub-sectors. Meanwhile, dairy and beef production growth will also slow down. However, we expect this to be a temporary setback and all areas of Morocco's agriculture sector are set to enjoy moderate to strong growth from 2017 to the end of our forecast period. Our optimism is bolstered by the government-initiated Green Morocco Pl......

    BMI View: We continue to maintain a generally positive outlook for the Peruvian agricultural sector. We have modestly revised our forecasts for several segments of the Peruvian agricultural sector in our Q4 2016 update though continue to maintain a positive outlook for the agricultural sector as a whole. Export crops such as coffee and cocoa are hampered by infrastructure constraints and a lack of investment; however, as Peru develops and gains recognition for organic and......

    BMI View: The operating environment for Venezuela's agribusiness sector has deteriorated significantly over recent years due to the poor macroeconomic climate, a shortage of foreign currency for input purchases and general government mismanagement. Venezuela's economy will continue to be under extreme downward pressure in 2016 amid low international oil prices. The growing headwinds to the economy will weigh on agricultural production and consumption in the coming years, ......

    BMI View: Recent developments in Vietnam's economic and business environments add further weight to our positive view on its agribusiness sector. The industry holds strong growth opportunities in terms of production, exports and retail sales, particularly with regard to the rice, coffee, livestock and dairy sectors. Moreover, economic and financial integration in South East Asia will benefit Vietnam's exports of rice, dairy and coffee. However, Vietnam faces growing compe......

    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 43
    BMI View: The removal of almost all sanctions on Iran's economy heralds a new era for the country. In terms of agriculture, the return of economic growth will have the most rapid and direct impact on consumption. Production and investment in the supply chain will also benefit, but over the longer term. Therefore, production expansion will be slower than consumption growth in the coming years and Iran will remain a large and growing importer of key commodities. The lifting......
