Abstract: China accounts for 21 percent of the world's population and is one of the world's fastest growing economies. The value of production within China's agri-food sector now ranks first in the world. In this paper, we embrace a multidisciplinary approach to assess prospects for China's production, consumption and trade in agri-food products for the next decade. Key drivers and determinants include urbanization, China's current demographic dividend and prospective demographic deficit, the nature and sequence of infrastructure development and water governance. The expiry of China's ¡°demographic dividend¡± and water scarcity challenges are arguably the biggest challenges going forward.
