GRAIN UKRAINE 2018: about the risks of the season, China and Trump’s trade policy

The first key topics of speeches of foreign speakers at the III International grain conference GRAIN UKRAINE 2018, which will be held on September 7-8 in Odessa, were announced. This year the conference is devoted to the challenges and risks of the agricultural season in the context of grain exports. GRAIN UKRAINE 2018: about the risks of the season, China and Trump’s trade policy

One of the sessions will discuss the impact of Trump’s new trade policy towards China on sales of the Black Sea grain. The consequences of the trade war, in particular, will be the speech topic of Miriam Morat, Senior Economic Analyst at International Grains Council (Great Britain).

In the discussion about new trends in pricing and risk hedging we will talk about the perspectives of futures for the Black Sea grain. Jeffrey Kuijpers, Executive Director of CME Group (Great Britain), Matt Ammerman, Risk manager and Vice President of FCM Division in Eastern Europe and the Black Sea region INTL FCStone Financial Inc. (Great Britain), and Aleksandr Bobylev, Senior Pricing Specialist of the Department of Agriculture at ЕМЕА S&P Global Platts (Great Britain) and Aleksandr Solovey, CEO of Spike Trade Group, will be involved in the discussion.

The pool of speakers at GRAIN UKRAINE 2018 also includes Helen Fairlamb, Project Manager of IFC. She will talk about one more hedging instrument — the “Agrarian Receipts in Ukraine” project.

Also at GRAIN UKRAINE there will be discussions about operational efficiency, evolution of management decisions and innovations in the agrarian business. The final session of the first day of the conference will be devoted to work under infrastructural restrictions.

“In this year’s program we focus on speakers from those countries that are economically interesting for Ukrainian grain producers and traders. Participants will get an idea of new markets and trade strategies for them”, says Irina Bondarenko, Head of Organizing Committee of the International Conference GRAIN UKRAINE.

The uniqueness of the GRAIN UKRAINE 2018 conference is about special conditions for networking: both days involve one-on-one meetings for negotiations and signing of business contracts. At the end of the first day a big Cuban party will be organized at the «City Food Market», and during the second day the establishment of business and friendly relations will be held in the club PlyazNik.
