Guo Weimin, vice-minister of China's State Council Information Office, said he hoped the signing of the memorandum could lead to a new mechanism for cooperation in the agricultural sector between the two sides.

The World Food Prize was established by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Norman E. Borlaug in 1986 to honor those individuals whose breakthrough accomplishments have advanced human development by improving the quality, quantity or availability of food in the world.

The foundation is based in Des Moines, Iowa.
