US media: Russia wins US food competition

66
American newspaper The Wall Street Journal She came out with a material that talks about increasing food competition on the world market from Russia. WSJ writes that the reason for this trend was the weakening of the Russian ruble against the US dollar, and this automatically makes Russian food products more attractive to a whole range of foreign countries.


US media: Russia wins US food competition


According to the American edition, the largest grain exporters Canada and the United States ceded their leadership to Russia. In the 2016 year, as the WSJ notes, Russia is ready to export over 23 million tons of grain, while the US is 21,8 million tons, and Canada is 20,5.

The newspaper quotes expert agricultural products in the New York branch of the company. Societe Generale SA Michael McDougal (translation RIA News):

If the currencies of the developing countries remain low, the US will lose a huge share of the export market, and in the meantime the Americans will start buying more and more foreign products themselves.


According to McDougal, the tendency to reduce the US food share on the world market is due to the expensive US dollar.
The same publication reports that the weak ruble has allowed Russia to enter new markets - for example, increase the volume of exports of agricultural products to Egypt.

        That's why it falls - imported food is cheaper than our own. We are producing agricultural products, most of the costs are in cheap rubles, and for export we get expensive currency.

          food products - $ 3,99 billion.

          Separately comparative specific indicators of food dynamics for 2015

          The share of exports (to non-CIS countries) of food products and raw materials for their production in the commodity structure of exports in January-July 2015 amounted to 3,2% (in January-July 2014 - 2,7%). Compared to January-July 2014 cost volumes of supply of these goods decreased on 18,4%. At the same time, physical volumes of supplies increased barley 2,4 times, milk and cream - 8,4%.

          The share of exports (to the CIS countries) of food products and raw materials for their production in the commodity structure of exports in January-July 2015 amounted to 8,9% (in January-July 2014 - 7,1%). Compared to January-July 2014 decreased cost volumes of supply of these goods by 19,0%, physical - increased by 10,7%. In particular, the supply of pork increased 5,3 times, wheat 2,5 times, milk and cream - 53,1%, sunflower oil - 4,1%.

          There is a tendency - to bite off Russian products cheaply, and even cheaper.
          Something like this method of obtaining "expensive currency" does not cause delight!
          Do you know how oil has fallen in price?

        And therefore it is becoming more expensive that it is more profitable to drive grain abroad - there it is more expensive and for currency, but it is deficient in our country. Therefore, there was a decision to raise the price of grain in the country so that grain cartels would have an interest in selling grain inside Russia. Hence the rise in price of bread.

          belay Wouldn't it be easier to oblige the grain union to sell a certain amount of grain at fixed prices within the state, and surplus for export?
          And in the grain union, they are pursuing the policy of a husband acting as a pimp for his wife and daughter.

            Agree, but this would no longer be a market, but a compulsion. It was easier to increase duties on the sale of grain abroad, but here the grain lobby apparently reared up. Not everything is so simple in our "kingdom".

        They sell flour, and quite a lot, especially to the CIS countries and China. With cereals, this does not really work out, and pasta is completely difficult.
        Baking flour, pasta - for them grain of a different quality than feed for livestock. Feed grain pasta - pooh!

        Yes, because Felix, that is done almost all over the world. We have a corporate conspiracy. How can the production of petroleum products cost more than in Europe, where its delivery and processing are added to the price of the oil itself? the cost of electricity. You, for comparison, compare what and how the cost of fuel is laid in Russia and the United States. Another question is why the cost of electricity for foreign consumers is several times cheaper than for Russians?

            For the most advanced, this has already been explained more than once. The share of the cost of oil in the price of gasoline is an insignificant part. The main components are taxes and excise taxes. And the biggest impact on the final price of gasoline is not the cost of oil, but inflation.

            Oil production is at its maximum, yes, but crude oil is poured into a gas tank. Oil refining is lame. It is uninteresting to show the real cost of an oil refinery; it’s better to get half or more profit. And there are few modern refineries in Russia so far.

    However, I think that the goal of the American newspaper is not to express admiration for Russian grain exports. Rather, to form an opinion on the need for additional subsidies to their producers, on increasing import duties, etc. Everything is there for the sake of money. And while there is a confrontation with Russia, they will not spare dollars and Euros. But the trend is like, maybe the Westerners will really tear!

    Good news, right news. Russia has already fed itself, and what has not yet pulled up, pulls up very quickly. Expensive imports spur domestic demand "for their own", and the cheap ruble allows it to capture more and more new shares of the international market. Expensive imports "dry up" the sales of foreign cars - and ours can take advantage of the conjuncture. And so in many ways. Thanks to the sanctions and expensive imports. Russia can do everything on its own, not just pump oil.

      Only not so far.
      If we wanted to work, we would not call the switch a switch wink

        It is unlikely that this linguistic feature is related to hard work, rather to safety. We have people in the first place, and they have grandmas.

          So far, we have in the first place "the man who has the money". It’s hard to believe in the humanity of the capitalists

    Because they can not sell in the foreign market

    Great, a simple citizen wins.
    Quote: skrgar
    It’s necessary to sell domestically cheaper (cheaper - and less taxes to the budget)

    And if you sell expensively, and still do not pay salaries to state employees, then the grandmothers in the budget will simply be heaps - as an option?

    And how to sell expensive? After all, there are competitors .. And if you agree with them, this is a conspiracy that carries wild fines and so on.
    An ordinary citizen does NOT win, only temporarily .. Then a decline in production follows (and then even if prices go up on the outside, there is simply nothing to go there) .. and an ordinary citizen gets: 1) prices rise again 2) dismissal of workers (reduction production .. In general .. such is the sanctioned fertiperst "returns" to them. But we warned)))

    Fir-trees! Now one more pipeline will have to be pulled, for wheat. Once again, Ely-Paly! By analogy with oil, bread will also rise in price in the store.

      With the total grain harvest of more than 100 million tons, in 2015, export of 23 million will not lead to a grain deficit.

        Are you so sure that postscripts do not have a place? Personally, I am quietly dying from unprecedented crops in the Republic of Tatarstan. Already under 70 quintals with GA! With an average Brezhnevsky 10-17 C / ha. The secret is simple, high-profile reports, and then secretly bought in from neighbors in the Saratov region, take our harvest home!

    Everything returns to their own. At all times, Russia has been the largest exporter of grain.

    US media: Russia wins US food competition

    There were no such headlines; these were all the speculations of the authors of the article. The Americans stated the fact that with such a ruble to dollar exchange rate, Russian wheat is more competitive. Everyone understands that this is a temporary phenomenon. What kind of competition can we talk about when agriculture is subsidized in the United States, and in Russia it is stifled with a credit needle.

    Wheat is also a raw material. Nobody eats it like that. Why not flour or compound feed? Russia itself needs mixed feed in order to grow MEAT. "re-exports from Europe, or from distant Argentina! request hi

    Russia took the first place in the world in the export of grain ... and this despite the fact that the vast territories of our country are overgrown with weeds and young undergrowth ...

      Nature does not like emptiness, some fields can’t be restored already, some have increased soil acidity, mainly the productivity of fields is increased, and whoever has money is restored, those that can be restored.

    I do not believe. Usually it all depends on weather conditions and the price of fuel and lubricants and mineral fertilizers, but it is growing.
