Forecasts weakened in Monday’s quarterly “Tankan” survey, and plans for capital expenditure – a tangible barometer of confidence – dipped. The caution suggests that many executives are worried about the impact of the planned rise in consumption tax next April.

  4. 4. *The chairman of JCB has warned that 2013 results will be disappointing because of a sharp slowdown in India, its largest market by sales, as it joined a parade of global companies who are worried about their prospects in the BRIC nations. Wall Street Journal*Japan and Southeast Asian nations signaled they are ready to work more closely together in the face of an increasingly assertive China, as their leaders met for a weekend summit in which concern about regional security was a major undercurrent. *China's leaders reaffirmed their intention to turn urbanization into a powerful engine to drive growth and remake the economy, saying they would encourage rural residents to move to smaller cities, rather than Beijing, Shanghai and other megacities. *The headline index of sentiment among large-manufacturers in Japan rose to plus 16 in the three months to December, the Bank of Japan's tankan survey showed Monday, bringing good news for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe as his administration prepares to raise sales taxes in April. *North Korea named the aunt of Kim Jong Un in a list of senior officials, indicating she remains part of the regime's inner circle despite a purge of associates of her executed husband, Jang Song Thaek. *Taiwan's China Airlines and Singapore's Tiger Airways Holdings will set up a budget carrier as Taiwan's biggest airline by fleet looks to tap into Asia's low-cost aviation market. *Insurance Australia Group Ltd. agreed to buy the insurance underwriting businesses of Wesfarmers Ltd. for 1.85 billion Australian dollars (US$1.65 billion), betting that premiums will stay strong in a domestic market that has proved troublesome before. *A leading Saudi prince demanded a place for his country at talks with Iran, assailing the Obama administration for working behind Riyadh's back and panning other, recent U.S. steps in the Middle East. *A Libyan militia leader who has kept many of the country's oil ports closed since July on Sunday said his group would not reopen them because his demands for greater regional autonomy had not been met. New York Times*Thailand's main opposition party opened a meeting on Monday to decide whether to take part in a snap election called by the government to defuse street protests but one senior member said reforms demanded by the protesters should be implemented first. *France's Carrefour is buying a portfolio of 127 shopping malls in France, Spain, and Italy from real estate group Klepierre for 2 billion euros (1.68 billion pounds) in bid to help it revive its flagging European hypermarkets. *NPR has amassed nearly $17 million in grants to increase substantially its coverage of education and global health and development, and finance creation of a new mobile and web platform that is expected to allow it to reach more listeners and better compete with outside aggregators of public radio content. *The American International Group is near a deal to sell its big aircraft leasing unit to a competing business, AerCap Holdings of the Netherlands, for about $5 billion in stock and cash, a person briefed on the matter said on Sunday. *Chilean voters handed a landslide victory to Michelle Bachelet on Sunday, returning her to the presidency amid continuing unease over high levels of inequality in Chile despite an enviable stretch of rapid economic growth.

  5. 5. *Tunisia’s political parties agreed on the selection of a new prime minister late Saturday, breaking months of political deadlock between the Islamist-led government and secular opposition parties. Tags: World news Thailand Rice Mortgage Scheme Losses Reach $12 billion for First 2 Years; Losses Likely to Mount Dec 16, 2013 Thailand’s rice mortgage scheme losses for the 2 years from October 2011 – September 2013 stand at 390 billion baht (about $12 billion), the Thailand Finance Ministry announced, citing a subcommittee. The committee says the figure is equivalent to about 58% of the spending amount for these harvests. Losses are expected to rise the longer it takes Thailand to sell its rice stocks accumulated under the mortgage scheme. Meanwhile, farmers have threatened to block roads in protest of not being paid yet for rice pledged recently under the scheme. Tags: Thailand rice mortgage scheme Millers Protest India State Government Rice Purchase Program Dec 16, 2013 Rice millers in the Indian state of Katnataka are protesting the state government’s plan to buy 500,000 tons of rice at Rs 2,400 per quintal (about $380 per ton), saying “it’s too tall an order,” according to local media. Milers are launching a “no-sale, no-purchase” protest today. The rice is procured for the state's Anna Bhagya scheme, providing subsidized rice for the poor. As Oryza reported last month, India Karnataka State to Procure Paddy Rice at 22% Above Support Prices, the state government has already planned to buy paddy from farmers at Rs. 1,600 per quintal (about $253 per ton), about 22% above support prices of around Rs. 1310 a quintal (about $207 per ton). Millers have been providing the state government 150,000 tons of rice per year for the last 20 years. However, they say selling the government 500,000 tons is not feasible, though it’s below the government’s original request for 1.3 million tons when the program was first announced.

Rough rice futures were little changed as the front month contract continues to find support from traders looking to roll short positions forward. A lack of registered warehouse receipts has put the pressure on those who are short and causing them to pay up to roll their positions into the March contract. The other grains were mixed with soy products trading higher while corn and wheat were softer on the day; soybeans finished the day about 0.8% higher at $13.3775 per bushel; wheat finished about 1.1% lower at $6.2175 per bushel; and corn finished the day about 0.5% lower at $4.2325 per bushel.U.S. stocks surged on Monday, with the Dow and the S&P 500 bouncing back from two consecutive weekly declines, as Wall Street tried to measure what's ahead for monetary stimulus one day ahead of a two-day Federal Reserve meeting. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied. After falling 1.7% last week, its largest drop since the end of August, the S&P 500 gained, with energy and telecommunications leading a broad rally that had all 10 of its major industry groups rising. The Nasdaq also rose. U.S. stock markets are currently trading about 1% higher, gold is trading about 0.7% higher, crude oil is seen trading about 0.9% higher, and the U.S. dollar is seen trading about 0.2% lower at about 2:00pm Chicago time.Friday, there were 1,339 contracts traded, up from 571 contracts traded on Thursday.

While visiting the U.S. in August 2013, the group of Chinese had visited ag facilities and universities across the U.S., including the Dale Bumpers National Rice Research Center in the major U.S. rice producing state of Arkansas. Seeds were also found at one of the scientist’s residence.If found guilty in the court of law and convicted, the two scientists face punishment of 10 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

Right now, Croatia imports most of its food from neighboring EU (European Union) countries but reforms as a result of the EU accession process could open the country to more U.S. food imports. “EU membership may make it less expensive to source U.S. products from another member state hub.” Croatia produces no rice so it imports from other EU member states. Croatia joined the EU in July 2013.In 2012, Croatia imported about 10,474 tons of rice valued at about $10 million (suggesting a value of about $954 per ton). Rice imports have grown 3% annually in the last five years.Most Croatia food importers speak English but are not familiar with U.S. goods and have no understanding of U.S. quality, according to the report.

Analysts suggest that the amount of selling at lower levels will likely be limited to those who need to sell and move their rice before the end of the year.As of today, offers could still be found around $15.65-$16.66 per fob farm (about $345-$367 per ton), depending on where they are located in the U.S. mid-South and how quickly they could ship.Bids from larger mills held steady near $15.00 per cwt (about $331 per ton) while bids from exporters were unchanged near $15.25 per cwt (about $336 per ton), both for December through January delivery, although there were reports of rice trading as low as as $15.55 per cwt (about $343 per ton) for prompt delivery.
