Improving Logistics for Perishable Agricultural Products in the People's Republic of China reports on the logistics of efficiently moving produce to the tables of more than 1 billion consumers. Aimed at agricultural policy makers in the PRC, the report also offers lessons and guidance for other developing economies in the AsiaPacific region.
