Despite China being the largest rice producer in the world, the process of cultivation and harvesting remains extremely labor intensive with very little automation. It is people working to feed people, just as it was perhaps meant to be.
China, it is a giant dragon that draws the world to its shores. We are in China because China can produce, it has the machines, it has the work force, it has the discipline and most of all it has the power to keep its heart beating regularly. Determination, stamina and will power are words I put to describe this great machine of a nation.
