China’s “outward” (foreign) investments in food and agriculture
USDA’s Economic Research Service has a new report on China’s investment in agriculture and farmland.
China’s outward agricultural investments are growing rapidly.
The purchases are everywhere: Indonesia, New Zealand, Bulgaria, Jamaica, etc., but some is in the United States.
China owns Smithfield, for example (see previous post).
The report is worth a serious read. If you aren’t up to that, take a look at the tables and figures. I wanted to reproduce a lot more of them.
