Date period
6 May 2013

China's fast-growing farm subsidies have generated new interest in whether these programmes can help achieve public policy goals, without distorting trade and production. This study, by NI Hongxing, finds that agricultural support could help boost low rural incomes and tackle food insecurity, but calls for more attention to be paid to environmental sustainability. It is part of a series on policy reforms in major economies that will also include analysis on the US, EU, India and Brazil.
