Over 40 attendees from the Japanese grain and oilseed industry made for a very successful contract seminar on November 30 at the Shinagawa Goos in Tokyo. Participants in the seminar, which was led by NAEGA President and CEO Gary Martin and Senior Advisers Sam Bonilla and Andrew Marting, reviewed international grain trade contracts and took a close look at the NAEGA II FOB contract. In addition, Andrew presented on the recent changes to the NAEGA 2 contract.
Following the seminar, NAEGA welcomed approximately 60 guests to a reception to celebrate the Japanese grain and oilseed industry. The reception was opened with remarks from Gary, followed by speeches from the U.S. Embassy’s Senior Agricultural Attaché, the head of the Grain Operations Division at the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and the Japanese Feed Trade Association (JFTA). A copy of Gary’s remarks can be found here.
