Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang on Tuesday said Chinese companies have independently purchased American agricultural products according to the needs of the domestic market in a market-oriented way.

Geng was responding to questions about China's purchase of agricultural products from the United States at a regular press conference.

“Based on preliminary information, Chinese enterprises have purchased 20 million tons of soybeans, 700,000 tons of pork, 700,000 tons of sorghum, 230,000 tons of wheat and 320,000 tons of cotton from the United States this year,” Geng said.

“China will accelerate the procurement of American agricultural products,” Geng added.
