Policy Trends

China has implemented substantial economic policy reforms since 1978. A fundamental element has been reform of the raft of agricultural and agriculturerelated policies contained in China’s governance framework. While the general direction of reforms has been consistent, there have also been numerous small policy shifts and changes in the detail of policies. In this chapter, trends in agricultural and related policies during the period 1990-2005 are highlighted, followed by an evaluation of the support provided to producers.
