7 Sustainable Operation Mechanism to Three Rural Reform establish BIRUP Overview Solution Elements Transforming 229 million household farming throughout China into technology-enabled Large Scale Farming. Highly intensive use of labor, water, and fertilizer. Agriculture Peasants Transforming individual peasants into Professional Farmers or Workers. About 275 million workers remain in agriculture (35% of the labor force). Sustainability Villages Under the guidelines of the UNESCO Man & Biosphere harmony (Economy, Society, Environment) Transforming the declining villages (1/4 of the labor force has been absorbed by urbanization) into Integrated Rural Urban Towns in the rural area next to big cities. Current structure is inefficient with very small and fragmented farms. Land tenure issue is holding back productivity improvements and modernization of China s agriculture. 14 7

8 UNESCO-CHIC BIRUP April 16, 2012 Mr. Hans d Orville, Assistant Director-General for Strategic Planning from UNESCO, signed BIRUP document with Mr. Edward Zhu, CEO of CHIC Group, at Paris, France. UNESCO-CHIC BIRUP White Paper v2.5 (March 2013) Download at: It is the first time UNESCO form such a partnership with Chinese private enterprise. BIRUP Overview China s Reform Plan Third Plenary Session of the 18 th Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee set to deepen reform. Nov. 9 th to 12 th in Beijing Quoted from Wall Street Journal & Xinhuanet: The reforms are essential for China as it tries to find a sustainable growth model over the medium and long term. History shows that land and agriculture is deeply related to the fate of Chinese people. The old urban-rural dual structure is expected to be reshaped following reforms in such fields as the land system, the social security system, modern agriculture and law. Document proposed a variety of experiments, including putting together markets for farmers to swap land, imposing property taxes more broadly as a way to restrain rapidly escalating property prices, creating an intellectual-property court and expanding carbon-trading exchanges to more cities. A series of reforms, including phasing out a decades-old residence-permit system, providing additional revenue to localities, giving rural households title to land, and fairer access to public services. Reference links: 8

9 BIRUP Overview China s Reform Plan Quoted from China Daily: The plan looks for ways to improve the livelihood of China's 650 million rural residents, whose incomes lag well behind those of urban China. For those that remain on the farm, the plan would give them greater property rights and allow them to mortgage their properties. It also envisions experiments in allowing farmers to sell their land. Hundreds of millions of Chinese farmers also have migrated to Chinese cities for work but have been disadvantaged there because they lack the residence permit needed to get pension, medical and education benefits similar to those of urban residents. The migrants are under pressure to save whatever they earn in case family members get ill and they have big expenses, which prevents them from contributing more to consumer spending. The plan would give ease migrants ability to get residence permits, called hukou, in smaller and medium-size cities though it would still attempt to strictly control their movement to China's largest cities. That's partly because China's planners fear a huge influx could create slums and partly because cities resist having to pay additional money in social benefits. Urbanization -- a critical driving force for China's long-term economic growth. Urbanization will bring RMB 40 trillion investment into fixed assets (farmhouse land) in the next 10 years and grow RMB 56.8 trillion of GDP. BIRUP Overview China s Reform Plan <The Decision on Major Issues Concerning Comprehensively Deepening Reforms> Selecting partial text III. Modern market system 11. Form a construction-land market that unifies urban and rural areas. Allow the sale, leasing and demutualization of rural, collectively owned buildable land under the premise that it conforms to planning. Enlarge the area in which State-owned land can be leased. Reduce land allocation that does not promote public welfare. VI. Urban-rural development The existing urban-rural dual structure is a main obstacle to integrated development. Efforts must be made to allow farmers to participate in China's modernization. 20. Accelerate the building of a new agricultural-operation system based on a mix of family, collective, cooperative and enterprise operations. Land-contracting rights will be protected. Farmers are allowed to become shareholders in the agriculture-industrialization via their land-contracting rights. Private capital is encouraged to invest in a modern planting and breeding industry, and for introducing modern production and management methods. 21. Farmers will be given more property rights. They are encouraged to develop a shareholding system from which they can realize benefits. Meanwhile, they can also sell a share or take it as collateral or warranty. They also have the right of succession. Moreover, the homestead system in rural areas will be improved, and farmers' usufruct rights of homestead will be ensured. A pilot program will be carried out in some areas to discover other channels for improving farmers' income. A rural property-rights trading market will be established. 9

11 China Current Situation and Challenges Most peasants remain poor (per capita income < $1,200/yr). Disparity between urban & rural areas and wealth & poverty. Food security Food safety issues. Agriculture is a perfectly competitive market. Capital is not being invested in rural areas. Lacking of agricultural talents. Sustainability Rural Urban Income Gap Remains Wide in China Between 1981 and 2005 the percentage of people living below the poverty line dropped from 84 percent to 16.3%. China s Gini coefficient grew from 29 in 1990 to 42 in 2007 to a strong increase in income disparity within a relatively short period of time. RMB (Yuan) Urban Rural 11

By 2025, China will have 219 cities with more than one million inhabitants compared with 35 in Europe today and 24 cities with more than five million people. Over the next two decades, migration will play a much larger role, accounting for about 70% of the new urban residents; The process of migration & urbanization, fueled by governmental policies, drives the growth of the consumer market by widening the affordability & availability of goods. 14

18 Business Opportunities & Recommendation for Netherlands Agribusiness Opportunities for Netherlands & Recommendation 1. Agricultural commodity trading with China on yield difference. Food Safety opportunity in China. Trends include changing production mix, increased domestic and international trade, increased farm size, increased attention paid to food safety and better environmental practices. 2. Produce export to China with food safety/unique varieties offering better value propositions such as taste, texture etc. 3. Investment in technology based larger scale farming and the reform project on the three rural factors. 4. Modern farming in China should start with effective education/knowledge transfer/ consultation services. Netherlands has extensive experience and strong skill set base in agricultural industry, which can be effectively transferred through consultative cooperation, such as JV (CHIC-Wageningen UR). Farm level opportunities include custom machinery services, and agronomic services including improving quality of farm inputs (water, seeds, and pesticide), increased financial services. Marketing chain opportunities include traceability and certification services, residue testing, and improved infrastructure for new domestic and foreign market opportunities. 5. Recommendation Think and Act out of Box! The box of Netherlands for production and operation and the Box of Europe for market! 18
