China Exporter Guide Annual 2009
As China’s consumers become wealthier they are increasingly consuming imported food and agricultural products. Imports from all countries reached $69 billion in 2008, almost double the value in 2005. Chinese imports of U.S. agriculture products increased from under $3 billion in 2001 to about $13 billion in 2008. Despite of differences in business culture and uncertainly about import requirements, U.S. exporters will find that this expanding economy continues to create business opportunities.
