Executive Summary:

This is 1.1 percent more than the 2009/10 seasonís estimated of 5.044 million tons and 3.8 percent more than the 2008/09 seasonís revised figure of 4.913 million tons.

Sugar production for the 2010/11 season is forecast at 637,500 tons Tell Quell [659,813 metric tons raw value (MTRV)]. The 2009/10 season sugar production is estimated at 636,134 tons Tell Quell (658,399 MTRV). The 2009/10 seasonís sugar production is 1.40 percent more than the previous seasonís 626,984 tons Tell Quell (648,928 MTRV).

Exports of sugar by Swaziland to the European Union are expected to increase due to the new arrangements that provide for duty-free, quota-free access to the European Union sugar market for qualifying Least Developed Countries.
