Dear Editor,

I would have to say that I disagree with what the manager of CEMA is saying. In the medium term I doubt very much that copra, or any other commodities for that matter, will see an increase in prices. In case the GM of CEMA hadn't noticed, there is a financial crises in all our major markets which will have negative spillover effects to exporting countries such as ourselves. I would like to say to all copra and cocoa farmers to prepare for the worst, as many economists have warned, "things will get worse before they get better."
