An Empirical Study on the Coordinated Development of Chinese Greenfood Industry Based on DEA Analysis


Article Preview

The paper constructed an coordination evaluation model which measures the coordinated development status of the development system of Chinese greenfood industry and its subsystems,and established an index evaluation system from the perspective of system. A DEA approach is used to provide evidence for the coordinated development of the scale subsystem and the structure-efficiency subsystem based on the data from the greenfood industry in Heilongjiang province. The results suggest that there exists a dramatic fluctuation of the coordination of the greenfood industry system and its subsystem,and that the coordination degree of the greenfood industry is not so satisfying,in particular there is a downtrend in the coordinated development of the greenfood industry. Further research suggest that it’s feasible to transform the mode of industry development and to enhance the coordination degree of the subsystems,especially the structure-efficiency subsystem to realize the coordinated and sustainable development of the Chinese greenfood industry.
