China makes global commitment to the potato

China’s commitment to the potato was very publicly and internationally demonstrated when it hosted the World Potato Congress, July 28-30. There were more than 900 delegates at the congress, two thirds of who came from China. The congress followed a two-day-long Chinese Potato Congress and was held in Yanqing, 75 kilometers north of Beijing, the country’s capital.
