BEIJING (Dow Jones)--China is gaining increasing clout as a large buyer ofgrains and oilseeds in the international market, but the scarcity ofreliable statistics on its domestic market is making it difficult forgrowers, traders and consumers to make correct decisions on market trends.A recently concluded grains conference in Beijing was a case in point.Those participants who were lucky to glean any numbers were told thedata were "tentative", "discussional", or worse still, "not for publicdistribution.""From my perspective, it would seem more appropriate for the rest ofthe world to rely on China for information it can provide, than be subjectto market speculation and balance sheets prepared by foreign analysts,"said Gerald A. Bange, chairman of the World Agricultural Outlook Board atthe U.S. Department of Agriculture, who was in Beijing last weekend toattend the gathering.In 2003, China's State Grain Administration applied to the NationalDevelopment and Reform Commission for permission to regularly report onstockpiles.That approval is yet to be given, an official at the grain agency toldDow Jones Newswires.According to a researcher working for an investment company inShanghai, most analysts now take USDA estimates on China's production andstocks as benchmarks."It would be good if the (Chinese) government could report figures(such as) grain stocks regularly, (so) we can compare them with USDAestimates and our own research," the researcher told Dow Jones Newswires.When contacted, an official at the International CooperationDepartment at the Ministry of Agriculture said grain output estimates havebeen previously published.Relying on outside information to gauge China's domestic situation canalso prove tricky sometimes."In a way, volatile price movements in the past few months reflectedsome irrational judgments made due to insufficient information," said ananalyst with an agriculture consulting company in Beijing.
