By Keith Woodford *. Although it leaves many New Zealanders uncomfortable, there is a stark reality that the future of New Zealand’s agricultural industries, and hence the overall economy, is highly dependent on China. The reason is very simple: there is no-one else in the world who needs and wants our agricultural products at the levels we produce those products. If action were driven by logic, then we would spend a lot of effort in trying to understand China. We would want to understand Chinese consumers, we would want to understand Chinese government policy towards agriculture, and we would want to understand what is happening on the ground in rural China. We do know something about all of these things, but we don’t know enough. In particular, we know very little about what is happening within Chinese agriculture itself. My first exposure to China’s agriculture was back in 1973 when I spent three weeks there with the first New Zealand China Society group to travel there since the mayhem of the Cultural Revolution, when China closed its doors to foreigners. That visit to China was a life-changing experience. My Western-style economics and New Zealand agricultural science education were of little help in understanding what I was seeing. Some 43 years later I am still trying to understand China. I recall a visit in the early 1990s when I was supervising some University of Queensland students who were investigating opportunities for Australian beef in China. Our big message back to our commercial sponsors was to forget about the steaks and focus on the offal. The other big message we brought back from that trip was that ‘quality’ is whatever the consumer wants. And if the consumer wants offal rather than steak, then that is what we have to focus on. . Since then, I have made many more trips to China and I have seen both their agriculture develop and consumer preferences evolve. Amongst all of the change, the reality that ‘China is different’ remains as a constant. As long as we look at China from our own cultural perspectives we will make a lot of mistakes.
