United Soybean Board (USB) director David Williams traveled to China from July 10-21, participating in and presenting at USSEC’s Soy Trade Price Risk Management Workshop and the USSEC-sponsored 2015 China International Oils & Oilseeds Industry Summit in Ningbo City, Zhejiang Province, China. During his trip to China, Mr. Williams, escorted by USSEC marketing consultant Claudia Chong and China marketing staff, also made servicing tours to key customers in nearby Ningbo.

USSEC China has conducted 13 risk management workshops since 2012. The purpose of the workshops is to help major Chinese buyers improve their risk management skills in the face of an increasingly challenging global market. 40 participants representing major Chinese importers, crushers and feed and integrators from all over China participated in the training. USSEC consultant Sue Goll presented the global soybean market situation and risk management strategies.
