Good News for Bulkers as China Starts Buying US Soyabeans Again?

first_imgBuyers in China purchased 1.13 million tonnes of U.S. soybeans on December 12, lifting the freeze on U.S. soyabeans imports imposed earlier this year amid faltered trade relations between the two economic super powers.The resumption of China’s imports of US soyabeans comes in the wake of a 90-day truce between the two countries as the duo negotiates terms of their bilateral trade deals.Announcing that the U.S. President would not raise the tariffs on USD 200 billion worth of product to 25% for the time being, the White House said at the beginning of December that China has agreed to start purchasing agricultural product from U.S. farmers immediately.“China will agree to purchase a not yet agreed upon, but very substantial, amount of agricultural, energy, industrial, and other product from the United States to reduce the trade imbalance between our two countries,” the statement further added.Welcoming the sale, Davie Stephens, American Soybean Association (ASA) President, said it was vital the 90-day process results in lifting the current 25 percent tariff that China continues to impose on U.S. soybean imports.“Without removal of this tariff, it is improbable that sales of U.S. soybeans to China can be sustained,” he added.While ASA is hopeful that soy farmers will be able to resume delivery of soy to China, Tuesday’s sale announcement is only the first step in rebuilding soybean exports to China and will not fix the prolonged period of low prices soybean farmers have faced since the trade war began.Good Sign for Bulker Owners?The dry bulk market’s earnings have been affected considerably by the brewing trade war which saw U.S. soybean exports drop 43 percent year-on-year during the first twelve weeks of the 2018/19 marketing year, which started in September 2018.In particular Panamax and Supramax vessels are affected given their reliance on the high volumes of U.S. soybeans usually being sent to China at this time of year.Panamax earnings fell from 14,385 USD/day on October 17,  2018, to 10,996 USD/day on November 23, 2018.“The weaknesses in Panamax and Supramax earnings in recent weeks is likely to be linked to the lower demand for seaborne transportation of U.S. soybean exports as compared to previous seasons,”  Peter Sand, BIMCO’s Chief Shipping Analyst, said.The drop in the demand has been one of the factors behind the lack of seasonal upswing in earnings which has been seen in previous fourth quarters, BIMCO said.As explained, tonne mile demand is further hurt as not only are the volumes of US soybean exports lower than last year, the distances sailed are also much shorter as the new destinations where U.S. soyabeans was sold, mainly Argentina and Mexico, are closer to the US than China.Now it remains to be seen whether the resumption of the U.S. soybean sale to China would be enough to raise Panamax and Supramax rates.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

England captain Joe Root motivated by Australia documentary series

first_imgENGLAND Test captain Joe Root says watching the documentary series about the Australia team has helped motivate him for next winter’s Ashes.‘The Test’ features footage from inside the dressing room and ends with Australia retaining the Ashes in England last summer.Root, 29, said: “It’s been a good motivator to get back and train, use it as a way of incentivising myself.”The Ashes in Australia are due to start in November 2021.England’s two-Test tour of Sri Lanka in March was called off after the first warm-up game and there will be no cricket in the UK until at least 28 May because of the coronavirus pandemic.Root, whose side drew last summer’s Ashes 2-2, said of the documentary: “I resisted watching that for a good while. I’ve started watching the first few now.“A lot of the things we do in Test cricket revolve around planning for the Ashes down under.“It goes without saying the Test championship is very important and every game carries a huge amount of weight, with points collected trying to get into that final, but a lot of what we’re doing is about building for that one series in Australia.“We have around 17 to 20 games until we go down there, if all our Tests between now and then are played.“We have to use every single opportunity to build the team up to be absolutely ready for what those conditions throw at us, what Australia throws at us, on the field and off.“We will really use this time to ready ourselves to do something special down there because we know how challenging it can be to play there.”England are due to play home Test series against West Indies and Pakistan this summer before touring India in the winter.Asked if England could reschedule their tour of Sri Lanka at the end of this year, Root said it would be “very difficult to work out” but England must be “very adaptable and open-minded”.‘We’ve got to go day by day’The prospect of not playing any cricket this summer has “definitely crossed my mind”, said Root, who has been Test captain since 2017.“It is a possibility. But we have to try to stay optimistic. We’ve just got to be ready for whenever that opportunity to play again is.“My wife hasn’t started giving me throwdowns yet. I’ve done a lot of fielding and given Alfie (Root’s son) a lot of throwdowns. He’s about 500-4 at the minute – it’s a bit of a flat track here.”Root, who this weekend said he had become a patron of Sheffield Children’s Hospital, is trying to stay as isolated as possible during the pandemic – and enduring some of the everyday problems afflicting much of the nation.“I’m taking this very seriously and trying to stay indoors as much as possible and avoiding contact at all costs,” he said.“It’s pretty impossible to get online shops at the minute. We’ve had one booked for three or four weeks.“We’re trying to be creative with our cooking and finding different ways of using what we’ve got in the fridge and not wasting anything.”(BBC Sport).last_img read more
