France is the largest producer of sugar beets in Europe growing just over 30 percent of EU27+UK ‘s production in MY 2019/2020. Ban on the use of neonics since 2018 has resulted in large scale crop losses this growing season because of widespread yellows virus, a disease spread by aphids that infested much of the crop this year. Because of the infestation in addition to the drought, French experts estimate that the yield will be down by 30 to 50 percent.
Saudi Arabia is home to an over-sized and resilient hotel, restaurant and institutional (HRI) industry that is a promising market for US exporters.

Overall swine production and slaughter will hit record lows in 2020 as African Swine Fever continues to impact China’s hog industry. However, the supply decline will bottom out in 2020 and 2021 beginning hog and sow inventories will be up by 9 percent and 15 percent, respectively.

Beef production will continue increasing in 2021, forecast at 6.9 million tons. Robust imports of.
Russia, a net importer of consumer-oriented products, is the largest consumer market in Europe with almost 145 million consumers. Russian consumers continue to economize, but they are also looking for healthy, natural, innovative and trendy products at affordable prices. Although economic sanctions imposed in 2014 have spurred domestic production and have reduced dependency on imported food products, Russia’s growing food processing industry and retail market present attractive niche opportunities for American suppliers.
Vietnam’s gasoline consumption has grown steadily at approximately 4-5 percent per annum. In addition to local exploitation and production, Vietnam spent approximately $2.5 billion on imports of crude oil and petroleum products, including ethanol, in the first three months of 2020. Although ethanol supporting regulations have gradually increased since 2007 in recognition of ethanol’s environmental benefits, the commercialization of five percent ethanol blended gasoline (E5) was pushed back to 2018. A lack of understanding by consumers of the environmental benefits of ethanol blended gasoline, as well as persistent rumors that it harms vehicle engines, continue to negatively affect sales of E5 gasoline. The Government of Vietnam (GVN) recent.

In MY 2020/21, Turkish sultana raisin production is expected to decrease to 280,000 MT from a planted area of 74,000 hectare (ha) due to lower yields expectations in some regions of Manisa where farmers suffered from hail damage in early June 2020. Turkey exports more than 90 percent of its domestic raisin production due to continuing stable demand from Europe for sultana variety raisins. The Turkish Grain Board announced the annual procurement price for raisins in September 2019 and procured about 10,000 MT.
France’s 2020 wheat harvest, estimated to be about 31 million metric tons (MMT), means a 25 decline in production as compared to 2019 because of unfavorable weather conditions. France will likely export significantly less wheat, projected to be 13-15 MMT in marketing year (MY) 2020/21 as compared to 2019 that had exports near 23 MMT. Barley production is also down from 2019 but there may still be a good corn crop despite persistent drought throughout France.
China has unofficially suspended its goal (established 2017) to implement a nationwide E10 mandate by the end of 2020. With the world’s fastest growing gasoline fuel pool, limited ethanol production capacity, and a recent drop in corn stocks and corresponding rising corn prices, the government rollout of the mandate has stalled and cannot be achieved. Ethanol production capacity has continued to expand since 2017, but even operating at full capacity, the average blending rate would not exceed 4 percent (E4) this year. In the wake of the E10 suspension, the COVID-19 pandemic significantly lowered gasoline consumption in the first half of 2020, while ethanol production capacity shifted from fuel to medical grade ethanol, further driving down
