EIU ViewsWire World -- 06/21/04 - There has been an unexpected reductionin demand for soybeans, principally as a result of developments in China.The Chinese government has taken a number of measures to cool the rate ofeconomic growth, with the result that margins for crushers have becomepoor. Consequently, contracts have been cancelled and this has led toreduced expectations of import levels during the remainder of the 2003/04(October-September) season. There has also been some tightening of importregulations, which has acted as a further brake on import volumes. Smallvolumes of imports are expected during the third quarter of 2004, althoughmost observers anticipate that imports will again pick up during the lastquarter of 2004.
