About this book


The development of China's grain marketing system is a crucial part of economic reform. The focus of this book is on the development of the domestic marketing system. Issues examined include the pace and content of reform so far, the development of wholesale markets, and the growth of a complementary financial system. Of special interest is the impact of marketing reform on regional trade patterns in the domestic market and implications for China's international grain trade policy.
