China to gradually deregulate grain markets

Posted by | December 12, 2013 |

China will gradually let the market decide grain and other major crop prices in a move away from the government-set price levels that have driven up cheap imports of commodities including sugar, rice and corn, the China Economic Times reported.

China’s agricultural price incentives triggered traders to import large volumes of these crops over the past two years, and in 2012 its sugar imports hit a record high. Corn and rice imports this year are also likely to set new records.
