After three decades of formidable economic growth, China has transformed into colossal and resilient economy, resulting in radical improvements of living standards and changes to the environment. Because of this, China has now become second largest economy and first largest food consumer.
However, China’s radical development has come at significant environmental cost. Main concerns are polluted air, strained water resources and land degradation. Secure food and sanitary regulations are little by little becoming a main concern for the global consumer’s market.
By 2015, it is estimated 10% of China’s energy supply will come from renewable. 100GW will come from wind, 290GW from hydropower and 10GW from solar.
Recently the UN Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) reaffirms this need, not only to increase food production, but to re-orient agro-food systems and the regulations that influence them at national and international levels, towards sustainability and the progressive realization of the right to food.
Therefore new ways of growing crops and harvesting them are being developed throughout China. A new promising market is growing: Technological and engineering agriculture.
The Chinese government is well aware of this necessity and slowly gives out more and more incentives to attract more investors on this field.
It is true that China offers big opportunities for agricultural projects. With their office in Hangzhou and partnerships in Chongqing, 5CGroup and Harold Doan and Associates Ltd. have an excellent understanding of how Chinese market works and has a broad and deep knowledge in investment projects of all kind. In other words, we can function as a bridge to China, and gladly take the challenge together and see through it from the beginning till the end.
