Import	and	Export	Analysis

    1.	Imp.	&	Exp.	value	analysis	(TABLE1	)
    1.1 Thanks to the surge of import volume, the import value of furfural increased by 42,532% in November 2010 over October 2010,
    although	its	import	price	decreased	to	USD547/t,	compared	with	USD39,800/t	in	October	2010.	In	fact,	China	totally	imported	
    about	310	tonnes	furfural	from	Iran	this	November,	while	the	number	was	zero	in	previous	months.	And	the	imported	furfural	
    almost	flowed	to	Xiamen	City,	Fujian	Province.	

    1.2	Owing	to	the	increased	export	volume	of	glucose	and	syrup	(50%>fructose	content	≥20%),	its	export	value	increased	by	80%	
    in	November	2010	over	October	2010.	Philippines	increased	its	import	volume	of	the	product	from	China	significantly,	amounting	
    to	916	tonnes,	while	it	was	just	22	tonnes	in	October	2010.	Besides,	Papua	New	Guinea	imported	179	tonnes	of	this	product	in	
    November	2010,	with	the	lowest	price	of	USD468/t,	compared	with	the	highest	price	of	USD2,406/t	to	Germany.	Moreover,	
    because	Vietnam,	the	largest	export	destination	with	the	relatively	high	price	of	USD2,050/t	last	month,	didn’t	import	the	product	
    in	November	2010.	The	export	price	reduced	by	60%.

2.	Imp.	&	Exp.	volume	analysis	(TABLE2	)
2.1	The	major	reason	for	the	increase	in	import	volume	of	mannitol	in	November	2010	is	that	China	increased	the	import	volume	
of this product from France this month over last month. The import volume of mannitol in November 2010 is 8 tonnes compared
with	just	2	tonnes	last	month.	About	8	tonnes	of	mannitol	imported	went	to	Shanghai	City.

2.2 Probably caused by the approaching of cold weather and the increasing demand for meat, many countries in Europe increased
their	import	volume	of	lysine	from	China	in	November	2010.	Take	Poland,	Netherlands,	and	Ukraine	for	example,	they	imported	
565 tonnes, 248 tonnes, and 109 tonnes lysine from China separately, while these three countries' import volume from China was
zero	last	month.	Besides,	Belgium	also	almost	doubled	its	import	volume	of	lysine	from	China	in	November	2010,	amounting	to	
720 tonnes.

2.3	Export	performance	of	Glutamic	acid	(GA)	was	also	good	in	November	2010.	Vietnam,	the	US,	and	Italy	increased	their	import	
volume of GA from China, amounting to 1,420 tonnes, 20 tonnes, and 5 tonnes, rising by 203%, 1,200%, and 2,400% separately.

3.	Imp.	&	Exp.	price	analysis	(TABLE3)
3.1 Thanks to the price surge of citric acid from Germany and Austria, the average import price of citric acid increased by 50% in
November	2010.	Import	price	of	citric	acid	from	Germany	and	Austria	was	USD2,346/t	and	USD4,002/t	in	November	2010,	while	
it	was	USD2,061/t	and	USD1,678/t	in	October	2010	respectively.	Besides,	Germany	was	the	largest	import	origin	of	Chinese	citric	
acid in November 2010, and Austria was the third largest.

3.2 In November 2010, China began to import Fructose and fructose syrup (Fructose content >50%) from Israel and Pakistan, with
import	volume	of	about	40	tonnes	for	each	respectively.	And	the	import	price	from	these	two	countries	(	USD1,185/t	and	USD850/t	
respectively) was much lower than that of other countries. Moreover, the import price from the largest import origin, South Korea,
decreased	to	USD1,578/t	in	November	2010	from	USD2,238/t	in	October	2010.	Therefore,	the	import	price	of	the	product	reduced	
by 32% in November 2010.

Corn Supply

                               Analysis into China's corn market in 2011

      I  t's	well	known	that	corn	price	in	China	has	kept	ascending	in	2010,	which	was	USD283/t	on	Jan.	1st	2010	in	Shandong	
         Province,	while	it	climbed	to	USD308/t	on	Dec.	31st	2010.	Entering	2011,	the	price	of	corn,	key	raw	material	of	corn	
      products, will be still the spotlight. Thus it's necessary to predict how corn market will go in 2011. As CCM predicted, corn
      price may maintain current high level due to its undersupply situation.

      The demand for corn in 2011 will keep increasing. Feed industry, the largest consuming sector of corn, is developing
      well and fast, and it needs more corn in 2011. It's estimated that over 160 million tonnes corn were consumed by feed
      industry, increasing by 7% over 2009. If calculated by this development rate, feed industry will consume over 1.7 million
      tonnes corn in 2011.

      Corn	consumption	in	corn	deep-processing	industry	also	will	increase	in	2011.	China's	food	industry	has	rebounded	
      from	financial	crisis	and	melamine	scandal	occurred	in	2008,	so	the	demand	for	some	corn	products,	like	starch,	starch	
      sugar, sugar alcohol, has also increased in 2010, and it will keep this increasing trend in 2011. Actually in 2010, the corn
      consumption	in	deep-processing	industry	was	estimated	at	about	43	million	tonnes,	up	8%	over	2009.	In	2011,	it	may

     Corn Products China News                                                                                      Vol. 4 Issue 1. 2011

      reach 46 million tonnes if calculated by this development rate.

      China	needs	to	replenish	the	national	corn	stock.	In	order	to	increase	corn	supply	and	stabilize	its	price,	China	began	to	
      auction national temporarily reserved corn in April 2010, and the total transaction volume until Dec. 28th 2010 reached
      14.5	million	tonnes	in	2010.	Besides,	total	transaction	volume	in	national	trans-province	auction	in	2010	reached	10.7	
      million	tonnes.	What's	more,	a	quantity	of	corn	in	national	temporary	reserves	auctioned	has	sourced	from	national	
      reserve since June 11th 2010. It's reported that the national corn reserves remains not too much, and it needs to be
      replenished in 2011 in order to guarantee the national food security.

      However, rich harvest in 2010 is good news to drive down the price. It's predicted that corn yield in 2010 may reach
      158~168 million tonnes, increasing by 2% ~ 8% over last year. But, it still can not satisfy the demand in 2011. Hence, the
      government	is	predicted	to	take	the	following	measures	to	stabilize	corn	price.		

      First, the possibility of the government to implement the national corn temporary reserve policy in 2011 is slim. The
      purpose of the government to implement this policy in last two years was to protect the interest of farms as corn price at
      that time was too low, and since corn price in 2011 is obviously high and farms' interest can be guaranteed, it has little
      necessity to adopt this policy.

      Second,	 the	 development	 of	 corn	 deep-processing	 industry	 will	 still	 be	 restrained	 in	 2011.	 Chinese	 government	
      takes healthy development of feed industry as a priority; thus, take current undersupply situation into account, corn
      consumption in corn deep processing industry will be limited.

      Third, China will increase the import volume of corn in 2011. Until November, the total import volume of corn in 2010
      has	already	reached	about	1.6	million	tonnes,	and	it's	estimated	that	the	number	in	2011	may	exceed	it.

      Besides,	 the	 government	 will	 also	 release	 some	 policies	 to	 stabilize	 corn	 price,	 such	 as	 encouraging	 corn	 planting,	
      reducing the cost in the whole supply chain. And although China's money and credit policy in 2011 is "Prudent", rather
      than "Moderately loose" in 2010, the credit for agricultural products is not so tight in order to ensure agricultural
      products supply.
