It's estimated that China would issue some new policies, hoping to improve the enthusiasm of farmers to grow soybeans and enhance the self-sufficiency rate of domestic soybean, according to CCM’s latest issue of AgriChina News Alert 1301. In recent years, China’s soybean import volume showed an upward trend year by year while the output of domestic soybean has been declining. According to China Customs, China has imported 58.38 million tonnes of soybean in 2012, with an increase rate of 10.9% year on year. At present, soybean industry insiders and food experts are expecting the supporting policy on the adjustment of soybean price eagerly. Price subsidy is considered to be a helpful policy tool. It is understood that the government would subsidize the price difference when the target price which provides a reasonable return to farmers is higher than current market price. Some experts also suggest that China should develop policies to support domestic soybean enterprises, including but not limited to tax incentives and government grants.
