LAHORE (PPI) - Pakistan has sold over 25,000 tonnes of wheat to Malaysia and Indonesia on competitive prices during the outgoing week. The wheat was traded around $310 a tonne into Asia, one of the most competitive origins for milling wheat, traders said, adding that most Asian buyers were on the sidelines this week following strong gains in global prices. Most buyers are more or less covered until August, so no one wants to step in to sign a deal when the market is so hot, said one executive with an international trading company in Singapore. Pakistan seems to be the only origin active, they are selling to Indonesia and Malaysia. US spring wheat was quoted at $525 a tonne, including cost and freight into Asia, a gain of around $20 to $25 from a week ago, and soft white wheat was offered near $385 a tonne, around $10 to $15 higher. Australian prime hard wheat was quoted above $520 a tonne and Australian prime wheat near $410 a tonne. Chicago Board of Trade wheat has gained more than 5 per cent in three straight sessions of gains, while gains in the high-protein US spring wheat have been stronger, with Minneapolis Grain Exchange rising 7 per cent during the period. Corn has added more than 2 per cent as inclement weather threatens to shrink grain supplies. Pakistan, which is aggressively marketing its cargoes, is expected to produce at least 25 million tonnes of wheat this year, leaving it with at least a couple of million tonnes to export with consumption estimated at around 22 million. Japans farm ministry bought 156,917 tonnes of milling wheat from the United States, Canada and Australia in a tender that closed on Thursday. The wheat is for loading in July. Traders said India and Myanmar were making aggressive offers to compete in the Asian corn market, given the slow down in imports by Indonesia. Indian prices have come under pressure in the last 10 days because of slower imports by Indonesian millers who have lost interest in imported corn because of local supplies, said a trader who sells feed grains in Asia. Myanmar is trying to price its cargoes at very competitive levels. Traders said Indian corn was quoted around $305 to $310 a tonne C&F, after having dropped from a high of around $350-$355 a tonne at the end of April. Myanmar corn is around $295 a tonne. Taiwans Maize Industry Procurement Association passed on a tender to buy 45,000 tonnes of corn from the United States or South America. There are persistent concerns over a severe drought in northern Europe, mainly in top producer France, which would undermine the coming harvest.
