Is there any reliable evidence to suggest that China is buying large quantities of farming land in other countries?
Furthermore is there any evidence if the above is true that the quantities they are buying in will cause food supply problems for those countries, whether this be minor or major?
Finally, is there any evidence this has been commissioned at a government level or are these just investors looking for opportunities for a product they see as a valuable asset in their country?
Here are some example headlines:
