The article reports that China will rapidly become a net importer of corn over the next few years, according to a U.S. Grains Council delegation that visited the country in March. USGC president and CEO Kenneth Hobbie, who returned from a tour of Asia recently, said that he didn't have figures on what the development would mean to U.S. corn producers. China's exports of corn have dropped from 15.2 million metric tons in 2002-2003 to a projected 4 million metric tons for 2004-2005. The country's imports this year are projected at 200,000 metric tons.
