China To Be Net Grain Importer, As Supplies Continue to Fall
China this year is expected to return as a net grain importer for the first time in nearly a decade as production, although up, remains below consumption and supplies continue to tighten. For wheat, exports have slowed considerably in recent months while imports have surged to nearly a million tons a month. Despite large imports and higher production, stocks are expected to continue to shrink, albeit at a much slower rate than in previous years. For corn, despite the recent approval of 3 million tons of export quotas, the government appears to be no longer intent on supporting exports with subsidies, without which exporters cannot compete in the international market. Since the announcement of the quotas last month, both JGG and COFCO (the only two state-authorized exporters) have been slow in signing up new contracts. For rice, although production is expected to increase, exports will drop below traditional levels. Shipments in the last few months have nearly disappeared as it seems the government has turned its focus to supplying the domestic rather than the international market.
