PUBLIC TALK: Financial Crisis and Rural Reforms in China: Implications for Australia
|Financial Crisis and Rural Reforms in China: Implications for Australia : China in Conversatoin
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.
