This title was first published in 2003. This prominent and commanding volume collates the best research available on China's agricultural trade. Critically analyzing the agricultural supply and demand factors that underlie trade patterns such as agricultural productivity and policy, it also explores China's agricultural trade and policy including implications for China and elsewhere. Long term issues and productivity growth are taken into consideration, as are specific issues such as WTO accession. The slate of authors combines the leading established scholars in the field and the best of the next generation, including those from China and the West.


'This excellent new volume of essays covers China's changing agricultural trade and policy, particularly in the light of its recent entry into the World Trade Organisation (WTO). It can be highly recommended to all those who need to know about the future direction of Chinese agricultural trade and productivity as a newer member of the WTO.' AgraFood Asia
