CHICAGO/HAMBURG. Argentina is about to conclude an agreement with China to promote the creation of pig farms, slaughterhouses and infrastructure meaning that Chinese investors will most certainly have their foot in the door in the South American state.

Agreement with China to boost soybean market in Argentina

Oil has driven up US soybean futures. On Friday, the USDA reported that 220,000 metric tonnes of soybean meal were shipped to the Philippines. Trading volumes are also estimated 8.3 million bushels higher than last year at 117.8 million bushel in the NOPA Crush Report for July, which supported the price trend in Chicago. In Argentina, the government is about to conclude an agreement with China on the supply of live pigs and frozen pork, which should pave the way for Asian investors in the country. Due to big problems with the African swine fever, China supports the construction of pig farms, slaughterhouses and the infrastructure required for meat production in interested countries around the world. Soymeal is meanwhile trading largely stable in the physical market in Europe.
