enable individuals, enterprises and government departments to gain
the necessary knowledge and skills to cope with rapid socio-economic
globalization, regional integration and the move towards a
knowledge-based market economy. This is particularly so in
the agrifood sector which employs 3/4 of China's population.
China's agrifood sector is backward and lacks a critical mass of
know-how, technology and equipment, particularly the quantity of
quality managers and technical personnel skilled in food and
agriculture necessary for swift modernization and internationalization.

advance China's agrifood sector.

technology, value add, and to respond rapidly to changing market and consumer
demand and trade liberalisation to reduce the cost of doing business and
agricultural production while increasing overseas competitiveness
