China is a vast and very interesting country. Eleven journalists from ten countries around the world experienced that during eight days in the Beijing, Changzhou and Shanghai areas in late September 2016. We met farmers, farm workers, coop members and staff from distributors and companies like AGCO (sponsor of the whole tour) and DeLaval.
Joining an E4D tour gives you a really unique opportunity to explore and learn about a nation, its people, food production and agricultural challenges and opportunities. At the same time you get to know agricultural journalists from other countries – this year Austria, Australia, USA, Canada, Belgium, Spain, Norway, Finland, UK and Sweden were represented. You get new knowledge, new friends and you get a lot of new stories to write when you get back home. In many ways, it is a life changing experience.
