Indian rice export prices rose this week as China started purchases for the first time in about three decades and on better demand from Africa, while concerns over supply propelled Thai rates to an about three-month peak. China is set to import 100,000 tonnes of broken rice from India on a free-on-board (FOB) basis due to tightening supplies from Thailand, Myanmar and Vietnam and an offer of sharply discounted prices. Top exporter India's 5 percent broken parboiled variety rose to $375-$381 per tonne from $372-$378 last week.

A Houston-based company said on Thursday it will build the first U.S. flagged vessel to install offshore wind projects off the east coast of the United States in preparation for an expected construction boom in the nascent industry. Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation said the vessel for subsea rock installation would comply with the 100-year old Jones Act -- which requires goods moved between U.S. ports to be carried by domestically-built ships staffed by U.S. crews -- and could be operational as soon as early 2024. The construction timeline would coincide with those of major U.S. offshore wind projects in the pipeline.
A Berlin district mayor aims to leave a controversial statue commemorating women who were held as sex slaves by Japan during World War II in its place - at least for now, the local government said Thursday, after Japanese officials asked for the statue to be removed. The issue of sex slaves, euphemistically called “comfort women,” has been a major source of friction between South Korea and Japan. In October, Berlin's Mitte district told a local Korean group to remove the statue, depicting a woman sitting next to an empty chair, after Japan expressed irritation.

Just nine months ago, a line would form each day outside Buenos Aires’ bustling Cafe Tortoni, people trying to get in to drink a cortado coffee in the Argentine Belle Epoque halls once frequented by writers and artists such as Jorge Luis Borges, Carlos Gardel and Federico García Lorca. Brenos Aires has long had a thriving cafe scene and its many historic cafes/bars — officially recognized as “cafes notables” for their contribution to the capital’s culture — are meeting points and tourist draws with their century-old architecture and nostalgia-soaked decor.

A dividend hike is also a useful sign for income investors, since it usually reflects expanding growth opportunities for the business, improving profitability, or both.

Nike routinely announces its annual dividend increase in November, and this boost was its 19th consecutive hike.

Exactly four weeks before Britain leaves the EU's single market following Brexit, it is still unclear how much access it will retain to the bloc's data from security tools used in everything from combating crime to business information. Britain's transition out of the European Union ends on Dec. 31 after which it will no longer be part of cooperation arrangements from trade to energy to transport it developed over 47 years of membership. EU and UK negotiators have missed multiple deadlines for a new partnership pact that would carry these ties forward from Jan. 1, struggling to overcome gaps on free trade rules.
European diplomats have warned that EU negotiators are "millimetres" from giving all they can in trade talks with Britain, as both sides agreed that Brexit negotiations have reached their most sensitive phase. The EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier has been in London for six days, trying to carve out a difficult compromise with his UK counterpart David Frost.As the finish line nears, tempers were fraying in Brussels with some of the EU's 27 member states -- led by France and the Netherlands -- worried that Barnier would shake hands on something unacceptable to them.An EU diplomat said the Europeans remained united, but that it was clear that Barnier "was millimetres away from the red line limits" he had been given."I think it's quite clear that at this moment in time that we've reached a point where we are so close to the limits of our mandate, that we need a movement on the side of the UK if we want to strike a deal," the diplomat said."I do not have the impression that we are hours away from a deal . . . what has to be bridged is still quite substantial," the diplomat added.Round-the-clock negotiations continueNegotiators are working day and night to agree on a deal in time to be ratified before 31 December, when Britain will no longer abide by EU single market rules under the terms of a post-Brexit transition.A European source with close knowledge of the negotiations said the talks would continue on Thursday "and no doubt on Friday"."Everything could change at any moment," the source said, adding that the sense of urgency was "now understood in London".A UK source said that there was no question that talks were in the final crunch."There is obviously a lot of expectation and we are definitely in the business end, but there are still real gaps," the source said.There will be no extra timeIrish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney on a visit to Paris said a deal would be possible in the coming days as long as European nations hold their nerve.Negotiations to determine the future trading relationship starting on 1 January are currently stalled on three key issues -- fisheries, regulatory issues and governance of a future pact.Coveney said he hoped a deal would be reached but that there would be "no further extensions" and "no extra time" beyond 1 January.
