Updated list of Low-Income Food-Deficit Countries
The Low-Income Food-Deficit Countries (LIFDC) web page has recently been updated.
The new list of the LIFDCs stands at 70 countries, seven less than those in the 2009 LIFDC list. These are: Angola, Armenia, Azerbaijan, China, Equatorial Guinea, Morocco and Swaziland. All seven graduated from the list having completed the "transitional phase", exceeding the World Bank income threshold for three consecutive years.
The Low-Income Food-Deficit Countries web page and FAO Country Profiles reference data have been updated to incorporate the official LIFCD 2011 list.
