Food triad

"Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif said here Monday that cooperation between Pakistan and China in Agriculture sector can help tap the huge Middle East Market.

Talking to the Chinese Vice-Minister for Agriculture Niu Dun, Shahbaz Sharif said that Punjab is the Green Basket in agriculture product and added that with the cooperation of China, we can export our finished agriculture products to the Middle East and beyond.

He pointed out that Middle East was importing agricultural products all the way from America, Europe and Far East."

Isn't that scary? I mean: China, with its long experience in ecosystem destruction and state capitalism and food insecurity helping one of the most food insecure countries of the world to intensively produce food FOR EXPORT?
