    China fears trade conflicts could pose threat to food security

    China fears trade conflicts could pose threat to food security

    Global trade conflicts and the increasing trend towards unilateral trade agreements have raised alarm bells in Beijing about how China can continue to feed its 1.4 billion people.

    Last month the State Council, the country’s cabinet, published a policy paper on food security – the first in 23 years. It said that while the current food supply situation was “very sound” it also flagged concerns about potential disruptions due to trade friction with the US. Climate change is another worry for future food production.

    China’s devastating experiences with hunger and famine mean that the prospect of food shortages touches a raw nerve.
