Abstract

A Jiangsu Agricultural Policy Analysis Model (JAPA model) is developed as a decision support tool for policy makers, and it can also be used for academic researchers to reveal the complex internal relationships among economic variables. The JAPA model combines an econometric model (LA/AIDS) with a programming model (Computable Partial Equilibrium Model). The objective of this model is to provide statistic indicators for the prediction of agricultural conditions, for agricultural policy evaluation and for agricultural policy simulation. This paper explains the methodological approach and demonstrates the application of the JAPA model.
