About Event  | Registration Form | Brochure

India is among the apex producers of a number of commodities and has a long history of trading in commodity derivatives. The Indian commodity futures landscape has been evolving and the national level multi–commodity futures exchanges have made a big headway since their inception. Trading volumes of commodity futures taken as a whole have risen at a compounded annual growth rate of 58 per cent during last decade. There will be new products; new services & new market participants whole continuing on the path of strengthening risk management and making a vibrant commodity market.
Commodity derivatives have a significant role in the price risk management process especially in case of India being an agricultural dominated economy. The Indian commodity derivatives market has already unleashed forces to bring about institutional changes in marketing practices but it is imperative to bring the sizeable section of the population, rendered vulnerable by price volatility of commodities, under the umbrella of benefits of the market. Therefore, regulatory framework needs to permit diverse stakeholder groups to participate in commodities derivatives market to attain its full potential in terms of growth and inclusiveness. Improvement and upgrading of support services such as warehousing infrastructure, testing facilities, demat trading, grading system, and credit finance are integral to the holistic development of the commodity market. Reduction in cost by abolishing CTT and other administrative costs may be ideal for bringing back the volumes in this market.
Therefore, in order to overcome the current shortcomings in the commodity market and enable the Indian economy to emerge as a leading and vibrant commodity trading market, ASSOCHAM is organizing the 16th Commodity Futures Market Summit at 9:30 a.m. on July 19, 2018 at Hotel Le-Meridien, New Delhi. We have invited Shri Shiv Pratap Shukla, Hon’ble Minister of State for Finance, Government of India, Ms. Madhabi Puri Buch, Whole Time Member, Securities & Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and other important government functionaries from concerned departments to address the participants. There will be a large participation by the stakeholders including the policy makers, National and International Commodity Exchanges, Security Agencies and Investors to name a few.
In view of the importance of the subject, we would request you to kindly participate in this important Summit and also nominate your colleagues to attend the same.  We would also request your organization to be the PARTNER / SPONSOR for the Summit as per details enclosed for your kind reference. We hope and trust that our request will merit your kind consideration.
Looking forward to hearing from you and with kind regards,
Yours sincerely,
