China is the third largest export market for U.S. agricultural and related products. For the first time in at least 20 years, consumer-oriented imports exceeded bulk commodity imports by value in 2019. Due to pandemic-related travel restrictions, exporters are encouraged to stay engaged by participating in virtual trade shows, conferences, and matchmaking events. The U.S.-China Economic and Trade (Phase One) Agreement provided new or expanded market access for U.S. beef, pork, poultry, seafood, dairy, animal feed, pet food, fruit, and horticultural products. This report provides practical tips to U.S. agricultural, forestry, and fishery exporters on how to conduct business in China. The report includes information on local business practices, a review of consumer preferences, food standards and regulations, and import and inspection procedures.
