China’s road to food security in a time of rising trade protectionism

Washington, DC – The rise of trade protectionism and antiglobalism around the world pose a considerable threat to global food security and nutrition. Two new reports launched in Beijing today provided critical analyses on the impact of trade disputes and protectionism on US and Chinese economies.

Despite the challenging current environment, China and many other countries continued to make progress toward a sustainable future through greater economic integration and commitment to ending poverty and malnutrition, according to the International Food Policy Research Institute’s (IFPRI) 2018 Global Food Policy Report, launched in Beijing today.
