Trade Impact On Food Security: Analysis On Farm Households In Rural China

  • Chang, Min
  • Sumner, Daniel A.

We simulate several alternative scenarios to access the impact of border liberalization on household food security in rural China. We find that most Chinese farmers derive most their income from sources other than grain marketing and buy a significant amount of staple grain. Opening the border to more import of grain resulting in lower the domestic price is likely to improve the general level of food security for rural farm households in China.
