Top Chinese think tank to cooperate with World Food Prize Foundation

Updated 2017-06-13 13:57:44 Xinhua

The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences signed a memorandum with the World Food Prize Foundation on Monday to promote sustainable development of agriculture.

On the sidelines of a high-level think tank symposium on U.S.-China relations held in the capital of Iowa State, the two sides agreed to encourage exchange of visitors and publications and to boost joint research activities.

They also vowed to cooperate on global and regional food security issues.

Guo Weimin, vice-minister of China's State Council Information Office, said he hoped the signing of the memorandum could lead to a new mechanism for cooperation in the agricultural sector between the two sides.

The World Food Prize was established by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Norman E. Borlaug in 1986 to honor those individuals whose breakthrough accomplishments have advanced human development by improving the quality, quantity or availability of food in the world.

The foundation is based in Des Moines, Iowa.
