This report monitors and evaluates government support to agriculture in seven emerging economies during 2006‐08: Brazil, Chile, China, India, Russia, South Africa and Ukraine. While the economic importance of the agricultural sector is falling relative to other sectors in these countries, the sector continues to play a vital role in providing employment and contributing to food security. Although weather conditions can cause large short‐term fluctuations, over the longer‐term both agricultural production and, in particular, agro‐food trade are growing rapidly. Brazil, Chile, India and Ukraine are net exporters of agro‐food products, while China and Russia are net importers.
