Flour Mill Machine in China
With one-fifth of the world population, China accounts for a quarter of total global food production. China is the world's largest agricultural producer by volume and the world's second-largest agricultural importer by value. It is the world's largest producer of wheat and rice.
It is also a global producer of corn, millet, barley, and oilseed. After the trade tension with U.S., China has shifted its overall agricultural policy to promote greater soybean production, meanwhile maintaining self-sufficiency for wheat and rice production.
China is the world’s most populous country, with a population of over 1.3 billion. Covering approximately 9,600,000 square kilometers, it is the third-largest country by total area. Since China began to open up and reform its economy in 1978, GDP growth has averaged almost 10 percent a year. China is now the second-largest global economy, the largest exporter and has the largest exchange reserves in the world.
