  • Description

    Parties to the African-Malagasy Sugar Agreement were summoned to a special meeting at Abidjan in Ivory Coast on Tuesday (October 23) to discuss the current world shortage of sugar and its effects on African producers and consumers.

    The organisation--founded in 1966 -- has as its members the two main sugar producers, The Congo Peoples Republic and the Malagasy Republic, as well as Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Chad, Niger, Gabon and Upper Volta. Through continuous consultation, the member countries follow a common policy of sugar production and marketing.

    Opening the Agreement's fifteenth session, the Ivory Coast Secretary of State for the Budget Abdouye Kone said the present sugar situation was creating anxiety around the world. He said consumption exceeded production, world stocks had reached their lowest level and prices were now at their highest.

    The session was scheduled to last four days.
