Chinese Agriculture Goes Global

China faces a challenge: feeding its own nation. With the rising of food demand and its reduced arable land, the world second largest economy is turning to overseas farming to sustain its own food needs. Its not surprising Africa, which owns 60% of the world’s uncultivated land suited for crop production,  is a very appealing destination. In the coming years Africa could emerge as a major provider of agricultural products to China. In return, China may also contribute to consolidating food security in Africa and other regions with its investment and expertise.
