Pi co-writes IATP report

Chendong Pi.jpgChendong Pi (MDP '13) recently co-wrote an IATP report title, "Fair or Fowl? Industrialization of Poultry Production in China". The report was published on February 17, 2014. Part of the report's executive summary reads:

"Poultry meat and eggs were not traditionally an important part of the Chinese diet. They were considered luxury goods for consumption on special occasions. Over the past three decades, however, China's per capita poultry consumption has increased from barely 1kg to over 9kg per year. Today, the poultry industry in China is dominated by chicken production which comprises 70 to 80 percent of all poultry production. On a macro level, by 2011 the country was already the second largest producer of poultry meat and eggs in the world and the size of the industry continues to expand.

Read the full executive summary on the Global Notes blog that was originally published on April 1, 2014.
