Oilmeals export fell 67 per cent to 1.7 lakh tonne in December with Indian products being uncompetitive in the global market, according to industry body SEA. In a statement, the Solvent Extractors’ Association of India (SEA) said 1,70,338 tonne of oilmeals were exported in December 2021 compared to 5,16,006 tonne in the year-ago period.

Thailand has a perfect demographic storm heading its way after two years of very swift change in the local employment market. Whilst people scrambled to find new employment in the early days, and are now gainfully self employed, employers are complaining of acute labour shortages.This problem has been exacerbated by the closure of the borders stopping the flow of migrant labour, mostly from Cambodia and Myanmar, flowing into the country. They all moved back to their countries in the early months of the pandemic.The problem is also being fuelled by a decline in Thailand’s birth rate, and an ageing population.Manufacturers are complaining that they’re trying to get their factories back up to full speed again but they simply can’t find people to fill the jobs.Even Hotel operators are currently struggling to fill vacant positions as they reopen to tourists, according to Marisa Sukosol Nunbhakdi, president of the Thai Hotels Association. She complained that a shortage of good applicants is … [Read more...] about Thailand News Update | Inflation rises up & Labour shortage in Thailand

File image of US President Joe Biden (AP Photo/Alex Brandon) Joe Biden was Barack Obama’s vice president. His Treasury secretary, Janet Yellen, was Obama’s pick to lead the Federal Reserve. The director of Biden’s National Economic Council, Brian Deese, was deputy director of Obama’s National Economic Council.
