China’s rapid growth, which has lifted millions out of poverty and created the foundation for a large middle class, has made it a focus of the world’s attention. At the same time, however, because of its size and diversity, coupled with a lack of transparency, gathering credible data and carefully analyzing the market is essential for success.

Recent and/or ongoing projects include:

  • Developing weekly and monthly market intelligence news of what is really happening in China’s oilseed and grains markets;
  • Identifying opportunities and strategies for a US state to capitalize on its relationship with its Chinese sister-province by providing a unique differentiated beef product;
  • Analyzing China’s rice, wheat, beef, and dairy value chains for a large US agricultural machinery manufacturer;
  • Analyzing the potential for a China-Japan-South Korea Free Trade Agreement.
