Grain price hikes will not affect demand in Southeast Asia

The record rise in grain prices will not reduce demand in Southeast Asia, where the leading economy, in Indonesia, has grown significantly, and where the increase in exports of chicken meat from Thailand is boosting consumption, say officials from the US soybean industry.

Demand in Southeast Asia, stable at a time when global supply has been exhausted by the devastating drought in the United States, the world's largest grain exporter, should further stimulate price hikes in Chicago, where prices are already at record levels.

Southeast Asia, where chicken and pork are food staples, will largely maintain its imports of soybeans and corn for animal feed, said the director of international marketing at the American Soybean Association for Southeast Asia, John Lindblom.
