    Since 2013, China has become the world’s largest trading power. It will soon be the world’s largest economy. It now has the world’s largest middle class.

    As Quebec’s second largest export market, will China be more open, or, as some think, gradually close itself off and increasingly use the power of its internal market to develop itself? What hopes do we have of finding more opportunities for our quality products?

    ASF now threatens 75% of the world’s swine in the EU and China.  The virus is spreading uncontrollably.  Global pork supplies are falling sharply.  Chinese liquidation and culling are fueling a massive pork supply gap in China.  Imports will be pulled from all directions globally.  Beef, poultry and seafood prices will be affected as well.  And no nation is immune from the risk of ASF.  How does this shift the global protein complex?  And, what are the implications of ASF in North America?
