Update on developments in the Chinese cattle and beef industry of relevance to the Australian industry (2006-2007)

Overview of Project

This project builds upon the previous MLA and ACIAR funded projects on the Chinese cattle and beef industry conducted by the CAEG between 1997 and 2000. Since that time, the industry - as well as the agribusiness and policy environment in which it operates - has undergone considerable change. This, this project aims to:

  • Update statistics on the Chinese cattle and beef industry, and provide a critical analysis of statistics in areas including production, consumption, price trends and trade.
  • Identify and critically analyse institutional and policy changes that impact on the Chinese cattle and beef industry, and Australian interests
  • Investigate change in the agribusiness and market environment of the Chinese cattle and beef industry including the breeding, cattle production, slaughter, marketing and trade sectors.
  • Communicate concisely change and drivers for further change in the Chinese cattle and beef industry and the opportunities and challenges that this poses for the Australian industry.
