The countries of Southeastern Asia (Indonesia, the Philippines) and some countries of Western and Southern Asia (Turkey, Bangladesh, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates) are also interesting from the standpoint of supply of grains, sunflower oil, sugar, beef and poultry, according to the Head of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy.
