ChinaAg is a market research and analytical firm dedicated to helping clients navigate China’s agricultural trade and food sector.

There is a critical need for market information as China’s agriculture sector expands to meet the needs of its citizens. In 2011, China overtook the United States as the largest global importer of agricultural products and passed Canada as the largest importer of American agricultural goods. In 2013, China overtook the European Union as the largest importer of Brazilian agricultural commodities and America as the largest global trader of goods. As such, the global marketplace needs a one-stop source for English-language news and analysis of China’s agriculture sector. Be it irrigation projects in Sichuan (“province of abundance”/豐富的省) or soybean imports from Iowa, ChinaAg covers all aspects of China’s growing appetite for agricultural goods.
