_Sugar Industry Tour to China

The Chinese sugar output is made up of cane sugar (86%) and beet sugar (14%). China is currently the world's third largest producer and the second largest consumer of sugar after India. China's domestic sugar prices are currently attractive for domestic producers, amid stronger world prices, which should help boost output. This means if normal growing conditions occur, domestic production will likely come close to increases in consumption in the next two years. There is a strong probability that China's import demand will fall below 1 million tons in 2007 and 2008?But another recent report has predicted that after China joins the World Trade Organization (WTO), domestic sugar processing firms will have to face increasing competition from imports. China will become one of the world's largest importers of sugar, reaching up to 2.0 million metric tons by 2011 and 3.5 million tons by 2015.

Day 01 --Arrive at Beijing
Over the past 850 years, Beijing has been China's political and cultural center. In the Jin Kingdom (1115-1234) in 1151, Beijing began to serve as the central capital. After the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) was founded, Beijing was made by Kublai Khan in 1263 the winter capital and a grand metropolitan city which became the center of international cultural exchanges in the Orient. The foundation of the layout of present Beijing was laid in 1404, when the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) decided to move the capital from Nanjing to Beijing and started a large-scale construction. Many of the ancient palace buildings, temple structures and gardens that are still visible today can be traced back to this period or later. Upon arrival, you will meet up with your coach and your guide at the Beijing airport before you transfer to your hotel in the central area of the city and free time to be at leisure for you after long flight and may go for a stroll in the area around the hotel or we can have an easier city tour if you like.
