China has become the world’s leading agricultural producer, producing in terms of value, as well as the combined total value of all OECD member countries. Agriculture continues to be a key sector that represents 31% of total employment and contributes almost 10% of China’s GDP. The growth of agricultural production in China reaches 4% annually, almost a third above the world average.
Agricultural production is based on small family farms of less than one hectare on average, although large-scale production has developed rapidly, particularly in the northeastern provinces. Also, the Chinese government has carried out a process of reforms to boost the economy through policies for the modernization of agriculture and industry.
