| ||Media Statement|| ||
Due to the disruption to world financial markets as a direct result of the recent tragic incidents in the United States, AWB has withdrawn from the grain market and will not be trading today as we reassess market conditions.
In effect, AWB will not be issuing any pricing in both the domestic and international markets today, Thursday 13 September 2001. AWB has in place a senior management team which will continue to monitor all pricing risks issues created by this incident.
AWB did not participate in the market yesterday (Wednesday 12 September 2001).
This situation is temporary and AWB will make the appropriate announcements in due course.
