USGC chair encouraged by trip to China

The chairman of the U.S. Grains Council recently visited China.

Brent Boydston says the biggest takeaway from the trip was that China wants to continue the trade relationship with the U.S.

“It’s a very stable relationship.”

He tells Brownfield meetings with government officials and customers in Beijing were productive.

Boydston, who works for Bayer Crop Science, also accompanied U.S. Ambassador to China Nicholas Burns to the China International Import Expo.

“Which is a trade show that brings in about 600,000 people. (Burns) is very very supportive of not only continuing but increasing the trade relationship between the two countries because it does serve as that stability between the two countries.”

Boydston says foreign buyers are encouraged by a better-than-expected U.S. corn crop this year.
