Thomas Mielke is Executive Director of ISTA Mielke GmbH in Hamburg (Germany), OIL WORLD, a leading research organization that provides global supply, demand and price analyses, statistics and forecasts for all the major oilseeds, vegetable oils & animal fats and oilmeals as well as for biodiesel and livestock products with clients in 100 countries.

Thomas Mielke will present latest world supply and demand estimates from OIL WORLD - - the independent provider of global research and analysis - - and will discuss the impacts on palm oil demand and prices. With record soybean crops likely to be harvested in the 2014/15 season, world supplies are ample. Although a setback is expected in world production of sunflowerseed and rapeseed, total world oilseed production is expected to exceed prospective demand, resulting in an accumulation of stocks in the 2014/15 season. -- For palm oil the production outlook is not as favourable as for oilseeds. First impacts of the drought of early 2014 will be seen in a slowdown in yields in several parts of Malaysia and Indonesia. Thomas Mielke will highlight latest palm oil production estimates for the two major countries as well as worldwide and discuss the competitive position of palm oil in relation to soya oil and other vegetable oils. He will also present his estimates on consumption and trade. India will be one of the highlights because this year's insufficient monsoon rains will reduce kharif oilseed production, raising vegetable oil import requirements. The energy market has recently shown improved demand in reaction to the sizable reduced prices of soya oil, palm oil and other vegetable oils. In concluding, price projections will be given for the next few months.

Dear Faudzy, yes I agree. And my conclusion has been on Aug 22 that oilmeals will became the weakest member of the complex, having considerable downward potential in the months ahead, while vegetable oil prices are likely to recover (at least moderately) and soybeans being priced somewhere inbetween. This was also expressed in the OIL WORLD Monthly of Aug 22, which is available under www.oilworld.de

In your presentation you have highlighted that the influence or impact of biodiesel production from Brazil and Argentina will trigger a lower export of soyoil from these two countries and consumers will look at the United States as its alternative supplier. In addition as you have clearly stated that the United Sates will endure a bumper harvest and crop, which in my humble view translate into an overwhelming or abundance supply of soya meal from the G3 producers and from other oilseed meals. How do you see the impact of these higher availability of soya meal and other oil meals stocks influencing the feed meal market and the vegetable oil price movements .

Dear Lim Teck Chaii, you touch a very vital point. Indeed, if the situation deteriorates, there could indeed be negative effects on the trade of oils and fats, grains, oilseeds, meals and other products. So far, however, impact on trade have been very limited. In fact, exports of grains from Ukraine and Russia exceeded expectations in July and August. We will continue to close monitor the situation and keep our reader informed in the daily Flash reports and in our WEEKLY. One member of the OIL WORLD team is from Ukraine. Kindly contact us if we can be of further assistance.

Mr. Thomas Mielke. Thank you for the presentation. Ukraine is in a war zone. In war affected areas, there is possibility of businesses facing shipment problem. Is this happening for oils and fats trade in Ukraine?
