China: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CH2023-0194
In December 2022, the People's Republic of China announced changes to its pandemic response policy, signaling a shift that removed previous restrictions which impacted food and agricultural trade and marketing. Despite the slower-than-expected recovery of China’s economy in 2023, demand for U.S. agricultural and food products remains robust. As the United States' third largest export market for consumer-oriented products, China imported $7.2 billion in 2022. Opportunities for new-to-market consumer-oriented products exist due to the rapid development of China’s e-commerce categories, including live-streaming shopping and instant retail. This report provides practical tips for U.S. agricultural, forestry, and fishery exporters on how to conduct business in China.
