Zhang made two presentations this week:
An invited departmental seminar Weds., Sept.9, 2020, at Penn State University Agricultural Economics department.
"The Impact of China’s Location-Based Environmental Regulations on its Hog Industry and Water Quality: A Synthetic Difference-in-Differences Approach," a joint work with Nieyan Cheng, an econ department 4th-year student.
A panel on Thurs., Sept. 10, organized by US-China Business Council and US-China Series on Agricultural Supply Chains.
"Your Chinese Supply Chain: Complexities and Challenges."
Zhang was also quoted in a Sept. 9 Gazette story, " Still plenty of corn left to fill China's demand: Iowa State University study."
Despite drought and a derecho, Iowa’s corn supply will be able to fill China’s shopping list, according to the Iowa State University Center for Agricultural and Rural Development.
“Our prediction is still a little behind the $36.5 billion target, but recent market signals indicate that China has record demand for U.S. corn, poultry and pork,” Zhang said.
Zhang added that, “If China continues developing its ethanol industry, the demand for U.S. corn will not slow down after its hog inventory is rebuilt.”
