7 October 2013, Rome - The Second Ministerial Meeting on International Food Prices has come to a close at FAO. Ministers from around the world are expected to return to their countries with new insights from today’s policy discussions and shared best practices. The first ministerial meeting was held just one year ago, in response to spikes in international grain prices. Though progress has been made since then, there are continuing concerns around issues of food prices and market stability.
