China and UK commits to stronger agriculture partnership
 
 

China has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the UK to strengthen their partnership on environmentally sustainable agriculture.

 

The Chinese Agriculture Minister Sun Zhengcai, and UK Environment Secretary Hilary Benn, have launched the Sustainable Agriculture Innovation Network (SAIN) to help address the link between agriculture and climate change. The network will provide a plan for the development and implementation of China-UK partnership on environmentally sustainable agriculture.

 

The network will enable the two countries to learn from each other and share knowledge so that impact on the environment can be reduced, said Benn.

 

This will be important as the world is facing a challenge of increasing food production in an environmentally sustainable way at a time of growing impacts of climate change, Benn added.

 

Sun Zhengcai said he hopes the two countries will fully utilise SAIN so that they could contribute to sustainable development not only in China and the UK, but across the world.

 

SAIN will help deliver the MoU and the Agriculture and Fisheries Work Programme of the UK-China Sustainable Development Dialogue.
