Qatar was ranked first among Arab countries and 22nd overall in the Global Food Security Index 2018, released by The Economist Intelligence Unit.

The index considers the core issues of affordability, availability, and quality across a set of 113 countries.

The Global Food Security Index is a dynamic quantitative and qualitative benchmarking model, constructed from 28 unique indicators, that measures these drivers of food security across both developing and developed countries.

The index also looks at the impact that natural resources and resilience have on food security.

It showcased Qatar's ability in various food security issues.

Qatar was ranked higher than 91 countries that included Italy, Russia, China, Turkey, India, Pakistan, Poland, Greece, Hungary, and Argentina. It has managed to make a number of breakthroughs in food security, following the blockade imposed on it on June 5, 2017.

HE the Minister of Municipality and Environment Mohamed bin Abdullah al-Rumaihi said in a speech given during a ceremony to honour agricultural producers that the sector was developing greatly following the blockade, with rapid growth in agricultural, animal and fish products.
