Special Alert No. 342

The Sudan
26/01/2018

In the Sudan the prices of the main staples, sorghum, millet and wheat increased significantly at the end of 2017, mainly driven by a sharp depreciation of the local currency and the Govenrnment's decision to remove the subsidies on wheat imports.

Highlights

  • Prices of cereals and other food products surged in November-December 2017, reaching record or near-record highs.
  • The sharp increases were mainly driven by a depreciation of the Sudanese Pound.
  • The Government’s decision to cut wheat import subsidies was reported to further underpin the increase in the prices of wheat flour and bread.
