China’s Growing Demand for Agricultural Imports

Fred Gale, James Hansen and Michael Jewison

No 198800, Economic Information Bulletin from United States Department of Agriculture, Economic Research Service

Abstract: This report examines China’s recent emergence as a major agricultural importer and its implications for global markets. It analyzes trade patterns employing U.S. and Chinese trade statistics, summarizes alternative projections of future imports, and discusses how Chinese officials are adjusting their strategic approach to agricultural trade as imports grow. A strong agricultural trading partnership has developed between China and the United States that is likely to persist into the future. However, Chinese interventions to preserve self-reliance create volatility and uncertainty that can disrupt markets.
