A stakeholder awareness and educational seminar on agribusiness and commodities price risk management will be held at Hotel Windsor Castle, Kodimatha, Kottayam, on Friday at 5.00 p.m.
The seminar is part of a series of events organised by The Hindu Business Line jointly with Forward Markets Commission (FMC), the country's commodity futures market regulator under the Union Ministry of Consumer Affairs and National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX), India's largest agri-commodity futures exchange.
The seminar seeks to bring together agribusiness stakeholders including producers, processors, industrial consumers, trading houses, importers, exporters and related 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.
The meeting will be addressed by Mr V. C. Chaturvedi, Director, FMC; Mr V.V. Ganesan, Vice-President, NCDEX; Mr Akshay Agarwal, managing director, Acumen Commodities (India) Ltd; and Mr G. Chandrashekhar, The Hindu Business Line.
Expert presentations will include commodities as critical drivers of India's economic growth and need for price risk management, benefits of commodity futures trading and exchange functions, regulator's perspective, and the role of brokers in commodity trading. There will be an open-house discussion where the experts will respond to queries from the participants.
