Commodities make up for a massive chunk of Asian economies worth trillions of dollars. Agriculture, mining, food, metal- and energy-related industries employ hundreds of millions of people across the region. Except a few straggling efforts to get deeper into this key industry and understand it better, there is comparatively little written about them.

We are a bunch of people with deep interest in this generally staid field of commodities to which we want to offer a seriously astute perspective using our ability to join the dots and link events that would impact trade.

We are mostly hooked to analysis. We monitor, track and dig deep into issues related to the industry and attempt to clear the cobwebs by offering better insights for trade and enable them to make the right decisions. We are about cutting the loop and offering that rare view that is missing on on news sites.

We care about the people who trade and build businesses from commodities, as much we care about the farmers who produce and the miner who digs. We are also concerned about what policymakers lose their sleep over.

IndoAsiancommodities.com offers a platform to people who matter to discuss issues of relevance. It is our attempt to ensure that policy wonks get space to share their perspective with an industry busy with tenders and trading. It is our mission to better decipher an industry that is not perceived to be glamorous, but yet has an important bearing on our day-to-day lives.
