Dairy import, China gets slower and the EU replies with quality

The global exports of dairy products to China slow down. In the period January-July 2018 overall dairy export grew by +4.3% compared to the same period of 2017, but at a slower pace if compared with the first 7 months of 2016 (+21.5%) and 2017 (+17.3%). The best performance is given to Infant milk formula, Butter and Whey, while SMP and packaged milk lose ground. In a context in which the reasons of the slowdown in Chinese imports are probably due to a lower liveliness of the economy (GDP should grow “only” by 6.4% this year and +6.2% in 2019, thus highlighting a downward trend, however positive), the European Union increases exports to China between January and July 2018 only by 0.5%, compared to 6% last year. Certainly the quality of European products is the basis for increases in Infant milk formula (+29.8%), Cheese (+5.7%) and Whey (+3.7%) y-o-y. The EU-28 export to China trend of packaged milk, milk powders, cream, butter and yogurt is negative. To what extent does the slowdown in Chinese demand depend on the slowdown in GDP, internal policies for the relaunch of the livestock industry or the situation of duties (see chart below)?

Chinese Soybean import slows down, while production increases [Corn and Soybean - n ° 9/2018]

The Global Corn and Soybean production is expected to increase in the season 2018-19, respectively of +0.7% (1.069 Mio T) and +0.6% (369.32 Mio T), compared to August estimates. In the United States, the world’s largest producer of Corn and Soybean, yields are forecasted higher, resulting into an increment in crops: +1.6% for Corn and +2.3% for Soybean. Corn production is higher in the EU-28, reflecting the increases for Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary and France. The EU-28 outlook, the largest global
