About this book

Outlines the freeing of markets for farm products and the linking of the domestic markets and international markets.

The book provides valuable reading for agricultural economists interested in how China will continue with its lliberalization and deregulation of agriculture and how it will link its rural economy with international markets. I would also recommend the book for all who are occupied with the problems of agriculture in transitional economies. Ottfried C. Kirsch, Journal of Developing Areas
