China's Ongoing Agricultural Modernization: Challenges Remain After 30 Years of Reform

Bryan Lohmar, Fred Gale, Francis Tuan and Jim Hansen ()

No 58316, Economic Information Bulletin from United States Department of Agriculture, Economic Research Service

Abstract: Thirty years ago, China began implementing a series of reforms to improve efficiency in agricultural production. These, and subsequent, reforms reshaped China’s position in the world economy. China’s rapid economic development and transformation from a planned to a market-oriented economy, however, has reached a stage where further efficiency gains in agricultural production will likely hinge on the development of modern market-supporting institutions. The development of market-supporting institutions in China will bring about long-term and sustainable benefits to producers and consumers in China and the global agricultural economy. This report provides an overview of current issues in China’s agricultural development, policy responses to these issues, and the effects of these policies on China’s growing role in international markets.
