China is an emerging force as both an importer and exporter of agricultural products. The purpose of the Beijing 2007 Symposium is to explore economic, environmental, and policy factors that will likely drive China’s international agricultural trade in the coming years. The Symposium will provide insights into trends in China’s agricultural trade, based on the latest and most comprehensive economics research on the topic. Leading scholars will present their research results on China’s trade, and they will draw out the global implications for policy makers and participants in global agricultural trade.
