Chinese agriculture has experienced some radical changes over the
past twenty years. Following the successful introduction of the
household production system in the early 1980s, difficulties were
encountered in establishing a unified domestic agricultural market
in the later 1980s and 1990s. Through a comprehensive analysis of
the changes in the Chinese agricultural institutions between the
late 1970s and the mid-1990s, this study attempts to provide some
answers to the main questions presently facing the agricultural
sector. It focuses on the key elements of the pre-reform
agricultural institutions, reviews the ways these institutions were
refashioned and assesses the resulting changes in agricultural
development. The implications of different policy choices are
carefully considered with the assistance of a computable general
equilibrium model. The author argues that China should push forward
with its market-oriented reform measures and introduce the rigours
of international competition into the agricultural sector.
