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 for a few straggling efforts to cover this key industry and understand the people behind it better, there is comparatively little written about those who really make a difference to the world of commodities.
We are a bunch of people with deep interest in what is generally considered a staid field to which we want to offer a serious perspective using our ability to join the dots and link events that would impact trade.
We are mostly hooked to analysis and faces. We are about cutting the loop and offering that rare view that is missing on news sites.
We care deeply 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 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.
