Geopolitical Trends in Ag Discussion Planned for Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit

Geopolitical Trends in Ag Discussion Planned for Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit

Strategist Peter Zeihan discuss worldwide geopolitical trends and their impact on the global agricultural economy.

At the ninth annual Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit, planned for October 7-9 in New Orleans, meeting participants will have a chance to hear featured speaker Peter Zeihan discuss worldwide geopolitical trends and their impact on the global agricultural economy.

The Summit is the largest annual industry event that convenes buyers, sellers and global leaders in the oilseed, protein meals, vegetable oils and feed grains sectors.

Strategist Peter Zeihan discuss worldwide geopolitical trends and their impact on the global agricultural economy.

Zeihan, a former Stratfor executive, will discuss how major geopolitical trends are currently shaping the global financial system and commodities markets and how they will do so in the medium and long term. Special attention will be paid to emerging trends in key agricultural markets such as North and South America, China, Mexico and the Black Sea region.

In addition to explaining what and why geopolitical events are occurring, Zeihan will address how they affect different industries and what companies and organizations can to do prepare themselves for the changes.

In a pre-conference interview, Zeihan talked about the outlook for Argentina. In the long term, he said, "If there is ever going to be a second major agricultural power on the planet [other than the U.S.], it is going to be Argentina," noting that this wouldn't happen during the current Argentinian government term. He also explained the reasons he felt it likely that Argentina would again default on its sovereign debt.

Registration is still open for the Summit, and use of the promotional code PR7-OGTS14 will provide a 10% discount.

Additional content includes a full-day, pre-event Animal Protein Seminar, as well as two days of sessions on relevant industry topics including commodity risk management, trade financing, food and ingredient trends, feed, transportation and much more.

Farm Futures is an official media partner for the Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit.
