London Will Africa Feed China Rumors and Realities by Deborah Brautigam Director SAIS International Development Program Friday November 13 6 to 7 30 p m Is China building a new empire in rural Africa Few development topics are as controversial and emotionally charged as the belief that the Chinese government is aggressively buying up huge tracts of prime African land to grow food to ship back to China In Will Africa Feed China Deborah Brautigam one of the world s leading experts on China and Africa probes the myths and realities behind the media headlines Chinese farming investments are in fact surprisingly limited and land acquisitions modest Defying expectations China actually exports more food to Africa than it imports Why is the reality of Chinese investment so different from the headlines Is this picture likely to change What role will China play as rural Africa moves from subsistence to commercial agriculture and China builds a portfolio of tools to allow its agribusiness firms to go global Will Africa Feed China answers these questions as it sheds new light on China s evolving global quest for food security and Africa s possibilities for structural transformation This

basins host underutilized land and water Some believe China is buying up African land to grow food to ship back home But Deborah Brautigam finds that Chinese farming investments and land acquisitions are limited China exports more food to Africa than it imports Will this change As Africa pushes for foreign capital China encourages its agribusiness firms to go global International concerns about land grabbing are justified Yet to feed its own population Africa must move from subsistence to commercial agriculture What is China s role Will Africa Feed China introduces state owned Chinese agribusiness firms that pioneered African farming in the 1960s and entrepreneurial private investors who followed This event
