“This symposium and plan are a product of a vision I share with my dear old friend Minister Han for the United States and China to work more collaboratively in the future to benefit our nations and agriculture around the world,” Vilsack said.

The Plan of Strategic Cooperation between US And China will help build and guide the two countries’ agricultural relationship for the next 5 years.

As previously mentioned in the article “USDA hosting first ever US-China Agricultural Symposium”, with good relations in place, this will open the door to more agricultural exports to China, including US beef exports.

This news coupled with the USDA creating to help beginner farmers start or grow their farms. There is a great deal of interest in the US agricultural arena, which could lead to greater agricultural growth and prosperity.

America’s position as “Breadbasket of the World” is already being eroded by countries like Canada, Soviet Union and China. Can this historic plan secure our position as the world’s breadbasket? With hopes and anticipation high, we will have to wait and see, as only time will tell.
