Grains and oilseeds sector:
Strategic risks and resilience post Covid-19
DAY 1 Tuesday 8 June 2021
Six Session: Trade policy, Strategic risk, Trade finance, Climate change, Trade and resilient food systems and Regional snapshot South East Asia
Trade Policy

Despite the challenges brought about the COVID-19 pandemic, the global supply chain showed robustness, with grains, rice and oilseeds trade flows progressing well with few interruptions. Nevertheless, challenges remain, including the need to find a balance between the requirements of local and international markets. With global consumption likely to reach new peaks over the coming years, the Panel will assess the role trade policy will play in future years in ensuring a dynamic international market – in enabling food supplies to move from surplus to deficit areas. Moreover, how can SPS rules and other relevant policies be improved to enhance the functioning of world markets?

Key topics for consideration:
Multilateral trade policy perspectives
Non-tariff barriers
Perspectives for the US farm sector

DAY 2 Wednesday 9 June 2021
Dedicated to six workshops: Rice, Feed demand, Oilseeds, Regional snapshot, Cereals and Pulses
Feed demand workshop

Feeding of grains and oilmeals has been trending higher in recent years on rising meat production and consumption, with maize being by far the main source. Despite the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, world feed use of grains and high-protein meals – most notably soyameal – is expected to reach a fresh all-time high in 2020/21, boosted in particular by demand from China, the world’s largest consumer.
