Why is the Communist China interested in buying up American farmland?

In an article for Fox News, Jeremy Hunt writes that over the past ten years, the value of land owned by corporations with ties to Communist China has increased from an estimated value of $80 million in 2010 to $1.8 billion in 2020.

Hunt, who works as a media fellow at Hudson Institute, then explains why the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is so interested in buying up farmland in America:

Home to 20 percent of the global population, but only 7 to 9 percent of the world’s arable land, China is an extreme food shortage. To combat the crisis, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) devised a decades-long strategy of purchasing millions of acres of American farmland, livestock, seeds and food supply lines from the United States.

Hunt adds that members of congress will soon be introducing a bill, the PASS Act, that would prevent Russia, China, North Korea and Iran from purchasing American farmland.

The Act would also prevent the purchase of Agricultural related businesses. For a list of some Agricultural related industries that Communist China corporations have been purchasing in America, READ: China’s communists don’t have food, so now they want to control ours
