China though? Even with a large population to feed, they have tons of land for agriculture. What about Japan?
Also, I know Bangladesh/Vietnam/Philippines are developing and might not be entirely self-sufficient, but it was still a surprise seeing them, since they have tons of productive land for agriculture.
On that note, why isn't India here? It's enormous like China and developing like many of the countries here, so why does it not import nearly as much food as some of the other countries here?
As for the developed Western nations like the UK and Germany, I have no idea where even to begin...
As for India, it's true that they have more farmland than most countries (it's actually #2 I think, with America #1), but only slightly more than China. Also, there are some rather arid and soil-poor regions in India, like Rajasthan, and even with all of their farming, malnutrition is a major problem. It seems odd to me that they wouldn't need at least *some* extra food from abroad, especially considering it fits the trends of many other countries here.
Not saying you're wrong on any of this (what you said Japan/Bangladesh/Vietnam/Philippines makes sense), it just still seems odd to me.
That's a good point that I wasn't really thinking of though. Looking at it per capita, Saudi Arabia and Iraq would be much higher than China/Vietnam/Bangladesh/the Philippines.
