On February 15, 2012, The World Food Prize Hall of Laureates was the setting for the signing of contracts between the U.S. and China for the sale of $3.5 billion in U.S. soybeans to China. As host for the event, Ambassador Quinn welcomed both the Chinese and USDA delegations to the building and gave them a special tour of the Hall. The following day, The World Food Prize would host US-China High-Level Agricultural Symposium, at which then Vice President Xi Jinping would deliver the keynote address.
