The Chinese government is encouraging pig producing companies to invest in pig production, both in China as well as abroad. So much has become clear from a recent governmental document.
China investing abroad is already being applied in practice. In 2013 the Chinese market leader WH Group (at the time known as Shuanghui/Shineway) took over US-based Smithfield, which in turn was also active in Poland and Romania. As a result, Chinese pig producers are already working in the USA and Europe.
