Policy & Management Research


Soybean is one of the most important crops for food and oil. The soybean demand has been increased in recent years in China. Since China has limited soybean production capacity, it has been importing increasing amount of soybean from abroad. It is a critical topic for China to develop the soybean production and expand the import channels to ensure food security. Based on the soybean demand-supply situation from 2011 to 2020, this paper discussed the problems including severely insufficient domestic production and supply, high level of reliance on international supply, and limited import channels. It put forward suggestions on approaches to enhancing scientific research for improving soybean production capacity domestically, strengthening international science and technology cooperation and global layout for production, and widening the soybean import channels. These will be helpful for improving the soybean supply capacity and fulfilling the aim of food security in China.
