The WTO challenge : agriculture (20 Jul 2000)


Looks at the likely problems facing 900 million Chinese farmers when China enters the World Trade Organization. Thomas Chan Man-hung (China Business Centre, The Polytechnic University of Hong Kong) talks about farmers' inability to compete with international competitors and the great influence it is going to have on their livelihood. China's meat, corn, beef, fruit and wheat industries will be affected, but rural reforms are aimed at modernizing farming techniques to make local Chinese products more competitive. Chinese agricultural experts describe some of the great economic and social problems that China faces as it heads towards WTO accession.
