In-depth agricultural report on China launched

Agrimoney has launched a new in-depth research report, “China 2017 – Agricultural deregulation and its global impact”. The report looks at Chinese government agricultural policies, changes to them and the consequences of this for the rest of the world.

Launching the publication as part of the Agrimoney Research Reports division, John Phelan, chief economist at Agrimoney, says: “This report looks at the Chinese economic miracle of the last 30 years and at the social and economic tensions it has generated. We examine China’s agricultural successes, but also cover the growing challenges it faces in feeding its population.

“We outline the motive for China’s regime of floor prices for agricultural commodities, how these have been enacted, how they operate and how they have grown. We also look at what economic theory predicts will be the consequences of such a regime. Now that the Beijing government is dismantling this system, we analyse the medium- to long-term impacts on the markets for rice, wheat, corn/maize, soybeans, rapeseed and cotton,” he says.

“China 2017 – Agricultural reregulation and its global impact” is a 99-page report and will be updated annually.

Key topics covered include:

  • China’s economic and social background.
  • China’s agricultural imperative.
  • Problems in Chinese agriculture.
  • China’s agricultural price support regime.
  • Price floors in theory and practice.
  • Chinese price floors in practice for rice, wheat, corn, soybeans, rapeseed and cotton. – AgriMoney
