All very interesting Richard! Thank you very much. China has been buying up farm land in Africa for years: it is preparing for a huge food shock. And however much people may criticise the world’s most populous nation, it can not be faulted for its long term planning.

It will be interesting to see how the CCP evolves over the next two decade as it becomes the world’s largest super power. Do you have an analysis on how that will it will go? Thank you kindly for all your thought provoking comments once again and hope that you are well!
