A stakeholder awareness and education seminar on agri-business and commodities price risk management will be held on August 9, 4.30 p.m. at Sakthi Hotels in Pollachi.

Organised by The Hindu Business Line jointly with commodity futures market regulator – Forward Markets Commission (FMC) – under the Union Ministry of Consumer Affairs and India’s largest agri-commodity futures exchange – National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX) – the seminar seeks to bring together stakeholders such as producers, processors, trading houses, importers, exporters and others operating in the physical market with a view to creating awareness about the need to manage commodity price risks arising out of volatile market conditions.

Experts will make presentations on various topics of relevance to market participants.

These include ‘Commodities as critical driver of India’s economic growth’; ‘Commodity futures trading for price discovery and price risk management’; and ‘Regulator’s perspective’.

There will be open house discussions where the experts will respond to queries from the participants.

Due to limited number of seats, registration is necessary.

Similar awareness meet will be conducted in Trichy on August 10, 5 p.m. at Hotel Shri Sangeetha and in Thanjavur on August 11, 5 p.m. at Hotel Parisutham.
