China continues to declare its willingness to invest in the Ukrainian grain market infrastructure.
Chinese state companies are willing to invest in the construction of port elevators in Ukraine, about it at the press conference held on the results of the fifth session of the Subcommittee for Cooperation on Agriculture Cooperation Commission between Ukraine and China, told First Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Yaroslav Krasnopolskiy . According to him, some Chinese state company is ready to build Ukrainian port silos storage capacity of 50-100 thousand. Tonnes and expects the Ukrainian side information available for the construction of platforms ports. The amount of investment at this stage is estimated at $ 2,5mlrd.
It should be noted that China and had previously stated about the interest of investing in grain logistics in Ukraine, including the construction of a port elevator in the Crimea, and in the development of internal infrastructure - linear silos, roads, railway rolling stock composition and even the fleet.
According to UkrAgroConsult, China's intention to invest in the grain sector of Ukraine related to the construction of a stable transport and logistics supply chain of grain from Ukraine. Recall, back in early 2014, the Chinese state-owned Cofco Corp has acquired a stake in the international trading companies Nidera BV and Noble Group - just in order to expand trade agricultural products to meet the growing needs of the country's food import.
In the past few years, Ukraine has become one of the main suppliers of grain to China. In addition, the Ukrainian corn supply in some periods may be up to 90% of China's imports of corn.
Trends related to the overall global dairy crisis.
In Europe, the sellers did not see the improvement of the situation. Despite the decline in production in recent years, stocks are still high. Noticeably worsened competition in foreign markets, and sellers are forced to go for further price reductions. And if, after a significant decline in the beginning of the month, the rate is now abated the food serum, but it is more pessimistic on the stern situation.
At the end of July, the European Food serum is already were sold for 800-850 USD / ton, fodder is estimated at 570 - 600 USD / t (see Table 5, 6..).
As before, the prices are markedly different of proposals for US-made product, moreover, there is also a noticeable tendency to reduce the cost of goods.
The main pressure on prices in the region have a significant excess of goods - production is still very active and demand - weak. Perhaps reduced to the new price level will contribute to increasing interest in cheap serum soon, and price stabilization in the long term.
Many operators are realizing that oil there is in small quantities and they tried to increase prices even for the local market. But, probably, customers havent enough money, it was hard to sell in big volumes and prices again slightly "rolled".
As already mentioned, price demand of Western importers decreased significantly. They informed that Fonterra sold the oil by price 2300 USD / t, thats why Ukrainian price should cost considerably less. But cheaper nobody wants to sell.
But in Ukraine there is no big quantities of oil. Therefore, in a further decreasing of prices, to sell goods for traders abroad there is no reason. Now it is more profitable to hold either or to contract with CIS countries.
This was reported in the press service by the Ministry of Agrarian Policy.

Small quantities of goods is possible to sell to CIS countries, high-quality milk can also be distributed expensive on the local market.
Well, here's sales to Western traders have become not profitable. At best, they give voice to the COM price-level 1450 USD / ton. Selling goods with such cost is not profitable for the majority of manufacturers, so the contracts almost are not making.
