Chinaís education and training sector currently lacks the capacity, the quantity and quality of education and training programs to 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.

China has an acute need for well trained managers and technical personnel knowledgeable in modern food and agriculture and what it takes to advance China's agrifood sector.

Australia is a major agricultural country and a world leader in agrifood production, processing, postharvest technology and marketing expertise.  It produces a diversity of clean, green, high quality food and agriculture products.  Australian farmers are highly skilled and are among the most efficient in the world.  The key to Australia's agricultural success is its ability to develop new 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

Participants in the China agrifood chain can benefit considerably from taking training in Australia and experiencing  Australia's modern farming and food processing systems in person by visiting some of Australia's most important and advanced agrifood regions.

AgrifoodAsia's China Agrifood Technical Training Programs are designed to introduce Chinese agrifood planners, policy makers, managers and technical personnel from government and industry to the Australian agrifood industry and its development, management and technology, and to help foster long term agrifood trade, investment and co-operation between Australia and China.
