Agricultural development policies Despite the continuity with the past, few can dispute that the terms of China’s WTO accession agreement pose new challenges to the agricultural sector. In some cases, there could be large impacts on rural households and these will undoubtedly elicit a sharp response. While the nature and severity of the impacts will depend on how households respond, perhaps of even greater importance is how China’s agricultural policymakers manage their sector as the new trade regime takes effect.

China’s agricultural trade after WTO accession Chen (see Chapter 11) examines how the pattern of China’s agricultural trade has changed since the country’s accession to the WTO. In that time, the economy has grown very rapidly. 8 per cent during 2002–05. 4 per cent during the 1990s. Undoubtedly, China’s economy has benefited from its more open international trade regime. In real terms, China’s agricultural exports and imports hardly changed in the period 1992–2001; but since then both have increased rapidly, although imports have grown much more rapidly than exports—so much so that in 2004 and 2005 China experienced its first agricultural trade deficits since at least the early 1990s.

This is partly the result of the slow-down in the growth of the TVE sector and the lessened opportunities for rural households to earn off-farm incomes. Incomes in the agricultural sector have not grown as rapidly as they could because of poor agricultural policies, such as ineffective and costly price support policies, regional self-sufficiency policies and monopolistic marketing and distribution of bulk commodities, fertilisers and seeds. China’s accession to the WTO should help to maintain pressure to bring about reforms in these areas.
