The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has elected Qu Dongyu — China’s vice-minister of agriculture and rural affairs — as its next director-general.

Qu will be the first head of the agency from China, and succeeds Brazil’s José Graziano da Silva. He will start his four-year term on 1 August.

The FAO wields considerable influence on almost every aspect of food and agriculture, including global and local policies, and helps to shape agricultural research agendas. With around 11,500 employees, it is the UN’s largest technical agency, and has a US$2.6-billion budget for 2018–19.

Qu has said that his priorities will include improving agriculture in tropical countries — where poverty and hunger are rampant — and helping arid countries to address the agricultural challenges that come with drought and water shortages.

Qu, the son of a rice farmer, is a biologist by training and holds a PhD in agricultural and environmental sciences from the University of Wageningen in the Netherlands. He was previously a policy researcher in agriculture and rural development at the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, and became China’s vice-minister of agriculture in 2015.

He was elected on 23 June during a biannual meeting of the FAO Conference, the agency’s highest governing body, and won 108 of the 191 votes in a secret ballot that gave each of the FAO’s 194 member states one vote. European Union candidate Catherine Geslain-Lanéelle drew 71 votes, and Georgia’s Davit Kirvalidze, who had been backed by the United States, received 12.

Qu outlined some of his priorities for the agency at an FAO meeting in April. He called for changes in the production and consumption of agricultural goods worldwide to minimize their environmental impact. Information technology and e-commerce for farmers provide opportunities to spur development in often impoverished rural areas, he added.

The minister also said that the FAO, which is based in Rome, must strengthen its core role of collecting and disseminating global knowledge, and supporting its members with advice on policy, technology and data. The agency also needs to make more partnerships with the private sector and outside bodies such as non-governmental organizations, Qu added.
