China: a tiger only in the East or a world player in high quality fresh produce exports?
An evaluation of the growth in fresh vegetable exports from China and a review of future opportunities.
Year of Publication2007
This paper examines the increase in China’s international export trade in high-quality fresh vegetables between 2002 and 2005 and some of the underlying factors that will determine its future export opportunities. There is evidence of an emerging orientation in its trade shares from E Asia to SE Asia, the Russian Federation and US markets. China’s underlying comparative advantage in such labour-intensive products is reflected in the increase in its market share.
