Integrated assessment of trade liberalization and trade-related policies: a country study on the cotton sector in China

United Nations Environment Programme (2002)

In China, the specific policy studied is that of import liberalization rather than export expansion. The study examines the impact of tariff-rate quotas (TRQs) on the production and import of selected agricultural products. The environmental, social and economic effects are largely imputed through changes in production and consumption structures.
