A typical news article on tariffs and WTO disputes. A good topic for IAs as a full analysis of tariff diagrams can lead to an easy fulfilment of evaluation criteria.

On the Farm: Where China Runs a Trade Deficit With the U.S.

On the Farm: Where China Runs a Trade Deficit With the U.S. | Goverment Trade Relations | Scoop.it

Agricultural policy has lately proved a tough row to hoe for the U.S. and China — the world’s largest agriculture exporter and the world’s largest producer, respectively. There was an unexpected spat over animal feed last June, and lately top Chinese officials have been downplaying the country’s need for U.S. corn. But at least for Vice President Xi Jinping’s visit to the U.S. this week, China is pursuing a detente in the farm fight. China is keen to cooperate with the U.S. in food security, sustainable agriculture, agricultural trade, and agricultural science and technology, China’s agriculture minister Han Changfu said in an extensive interview with the official Xinhua news agency published on his ministry’s website Monday, the same day Mr. Xi flew to Washington for the start of his five-day trip. Mr. Han, who is accompanying Xi on the trip, did not mention the trade spat over distillers’ dried grains, or China’s resistance to U.S. corn, but he did share some data that might explain China’s resistance to more agricultural imports from the U.S.: In 2010, China imported $18.6 billion worth of agricultural products, becoming the U.S.’s largest destination for crop exports. Meanwhile, Chinese agricultural exports to the U.S. totaled just $5.8 billion. The U.S. is China’s third-largest agricultural export market. In other words, unlike in most other economic sectors, China runs a large deficit in agricultural trade with the U.S.
