As the next China president Xi Jinping embarks on an official mission to the US, agriculture is high on the agenda. Cooperation in this field might help to improve the relation between both countries, tells senior research fellow at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University William Overholt to Reuters.
"The more the Chinese come to depend on U.S. agricultural exports, the more that could potentially make a big difference on the geopolitical relationship between the two countries," said William Overholt, a senior research fellow at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and author of "Asia, America, and the Transformation of Geopolitics
"The stronger that tie, the less the chance of some overall explosion happening in some other arena," Overholt said.
