Lifting Sino-African agricultural cooperation

China could also work to popularize its advanced agricultural technology, such as the Green Super Rice technique, in Africa and introduce its seed breeding, irrigation and cultivation techniques.’ n most African countries where agriculture remains a vital driver to the economy, Sino-African cooperation in the sector can not only reduce poverty and sustain growth but can also raise the international status of African agriculture and safeguard global food security.

According to the African Union, transport accounts for 20-40 percent of total production costs in inland African countries, well above the average in developed countries. In addition, only 40 percent of the continent is connected to a regular power supply which has seriously affected key links in agricultural production including processing, warehousing and logistics.
