"The Impact of China's Public Investments in Rural Area on Agricultural Productivity and Poverty Reduction"
by Li, Ninghui

China's public investments in rural area, as a whole, have been going up for many years as its whole economy develops. These include government investments in: road, land improvement, drinking water facilities, irrigation, education, health, agricultural R&D, energy supply system, and communication system. With the increases of government investments, China¡¯s agricultural productivity witnessed steady improvements, along with rural poverty reduction at the same time. It is natural to argue that productivity increases and poverty reduction mainly result from public investment or contributions by other factors such as general economic growth and price increases. While a number of research have reached the common general conclusion that such investment do mater, it is yet to be clarified 1) to what extent total agricultural productivity changes and poverty reduction can be ascribed to public investment; 2) which public investment contribute more effectively; 3) what linkage exist between agricultural productivity and poverty reduction. Getting a clear understanding of the above relationship constitutes the main purpose of the study.
