In response to China’s food security challenges, leaders are pursuing a “two markets, two resources” strategy to improve production capacity at home and increase access to agricultural production abroad. Increasingly aware of the challenges associated with land purchases in Latin America, China’s state-owned and private agricultural firms are pursuing a strategy of supply chain vertical integration to improve cost- and price-advantage in global markets.
