Greater transparency will make price discovery more accurate, deepening the gravity of Asian price benchmarks. E-trading will emerge where commoditized, high volume trade has reached a critical mass. Exchange-based clearing services will be offered where counterparty risk is an obstacle to growth of liquidity. Partialization of cargo volumes is possible if spot liquidity becomes bottlenecked by logistical constraints. Thankyou.:  ● Singapore ● Guangzhou ● Tokyo ● Sydney ● Thankyou.
