The overall goal of our paper is to explore this question of how China's policy will likely
respond as the nation enters the WTO. Specifically, we will have three objectives. First, we
briefly review China's existing agriculture policy and past performance of China's agriculture
and how it has changed during the past 20 years of reform. Next, we examine the main features of the agreement that China must adhere to as they enter WTO. Finally, we consider a number of possible ways that policy makers may respond, primarily focusing on the national government's viewpoint.
