Despite perceptions that Chinese investors are buying up large areas of Australian farmland, new research has found that China is not yet a major agricultural investor in Australia, and in fact, may own less than 1 percent of Australian farmland.
The latest report into Chinese direct investment by KPMG and The University of Sydney’s China Studies Centre – Demystifying Chinese Investment in Australian Agribusiness – provides the facts on the current scale and composition of Chinese large-scale commercial investment into the Australian agricultural and agribusiness sectors.
It analyses the realities facing China's food demand patterns and outlines practical initiatives Australian companies should take to attract more investment.
