Financial Crisis and Rural Reforms in China: Implications for Australia : China in Conversatoin Other events...
Reforms in land ownership and the opening up to international markets have contributed to China’s successful recovery from the financial crises experienced over the last decades.

Of significance is the shift in China’s policy towards agricultural production. With only 14% of land arable and pollution and water shortages reducing agricultural land by 2%, rural Chinese people, society and agriculture have undergone economic, production and social changes to develop a more robust economy.

Join in the conversation and see how these reforms led to economic growth and how this might affect Australia’s economy and approach to agriculture in a climate of environmental and economic change.

This event is presented by the Confucius Institute in partnership with The UWA Institute of Agriculture.
Speaker(s) Professor Tiejun Wen is Executive Dean, Institute of Advanced Studies for Sustainability, Renmin University of China and Executive Dean of Institute of Rural Reconstruction of China, Southwest University, and Executive Dean of The Institute of Rural Reconstruction of the Straits, Fujian Agriculture & Forestry University. Professor Kadambot Siddique is the Hackett Professor of Agriculture Chair and Director of The University of Western Australia’s Institute of Agriculture.
