China National Agricultural Development Group Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “CNADC”) was founded in
October 2004 upon the restructuring and merging of China National Fisheries (Group) Corporation with the China
Animal Husbandry (Group) Corporation and changed its governance structure and name in January 2011 according to
the Company Law. It is the only central comprehensive agricultural enterprise under the direct governance of the
State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) of the State Council. It is a leading
enterprise in national animal epidemic diseases and is irreplaceable in meeting China’s agricultural needs.
CNADC holds 17 wholly owned or share-controlled subsidiaries, and 3 publicly listed companies. CNADC’s business
can be found in all provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities in China. It has established branches or
bases in more than 40 countries and regions around the world and maintains economic and trade ties with over 80
countries and regions.
As a wholly state-owned company, CNADC devotes itself to international cooperation and the exploitation of
agricultural and fishery resources. Domestically CNADC keeps in mind its aim to serve “agriculture, rural areas
and farmers” and actively promotes the development of agricultural industrialization. After years of
development, CNADC has gradually built up three core businesses: development of strategic resources, with focus
on pelagic fishing and agricultural resource exploitation; research and development, manufacturing and
distribution of biological vaccines, vet-medicines and feed additives; and modern seed, agricultural insurance
and agricultural international trade. Meanwhile, it develops supplementary services for core
businesses, such as diesel manufacturing and port construction.
CNADC adheres to the plans made by the Central Committee of the CPC and the State Council to deepen reforms in
state-owned enterprises and follows the SASAC’s guiding principles “to grow stronger and larger” in a bid to
implement the “Twelfth Five-year Plan”. CNADC will continue its efforts regarding enterprise reform, further
adjust and optimize its business structure and make a more reasonable allotment of resources so as to enhance
the enterprise’s core competition. CNADC will cater to the domestic and international markets and strive towards
more ambitious goals.
