Engaging emerging markets is one of the 10 priorities TFA has laid out as essential to reduce commodity driven deforestation. There is no solution to reducing deforestation without much stronger engagement with China given its demand footprint for palm oil, soy and pulp and paper. Furthermore, with 80% of Brazilian soy exports going to China, it is even more important to engage China strategically as part of a broader strategy to maintain positive momentum for efforts in both the Amazon and critically the Cerrado.

 The TFA leverages the strong programmes and networks that the World Economic Forum already has in China to provide a high-level convening space and to elevate the profile of commodity-driven deforestation and greening supply chains. As such, COFCO International has recently joined the TFA Steering Committee and is keen to partner and deepen TFA engagement in China.
