Food problem is a hot issue, the Governments focus on one of the topics of food security is not only a political issue, the question of national security, social stability, and is an important economic issue, it is in the national strategic security and national economic security, military security, information security as an important position. The seed is an important carrier of food production the most basic, the most important source of agricultural science and technology, is one of the main areas of application of modern biotechnology as the core technology of genetic engineering breeding. The impact of genetically modified seeds to China's food security is a complex problem involving food safety, intellectual property rights, economic and social environment impact, the seed industry and the development of the agricultural biotechnology industry and other issues. How to build new kinds of industry system is a new era of industry development and food security, farmers' income key points, it is an urgent requirement for the development of modern agriculture, but also the national economy \From the turn of genetically modified seeds turn strategy with the food safety of genetically modified seeds, the use of political economics theory analysis of genetically modified seeds to China's food security, on the basis of Nielsen and Anderson,'s (2000a) The GTAP model is the result of, the use of its various data, on The transgenic seeds affect food security empirical analysis. Purely from a technical point of view, to increase grain output is theoretically feasible, genetically modified food to increase production aspect is limited, even in the case to ensure yield, grain output from the profits, but also likely to improve yields be offset because the prices of seeds, fertilizers and pesticides. Concluded that with the increase in population, the growth in demand, China's grain supply pressure in the future will continue to expand, while food security is a systems engineering, safe or not is also subject to a variety of factors, China's food security, there are also many weak link, it is necessary to attach great importance to the issue of food security. How to regulate and promote the rapid development of China's seed industry, enhance the international competitiveness of the seed industry is an important issue to be solved, and the starting point for what this thesis. The thesis consists of a total of five chapters, including the introduction. The first chapter of this section, including the background and significance of the topic, the literature review, the question raised related concepts, research purposes and methods, as well as papers structural arrangements; food security and genetically modified seeds, this chapter mainly from the food security genetically modified seeds, the importance of seed security in food security analysis, logical thinking and discourse foundation for subsequent chapters; Chapter transferred genetically modified seed development strategy with the Chinese food safety, this chapter from a strategic point of analysis of genetically modified seeds to China's food security ; Chapter utilize GTAP model estimate using the GMO (turn genes crops) the economic impact, major integrated use of Nielsen and Anderson,'s (2000a) of the GTAP model results, in-depth study of GM (transferred genes) technology on the production, trade and welfare, etc. and its impact on different reaction, based on the use of political and economic theory to explore the effects of the economic benefits of China's seed industry development, respectively, from the point of view of the political, economic; Chapter Conclusion This chapter summary of the full text to explore China food security, genetically modified seeds strategies proposed research inspiration and advice. Trying new explorations made in the following aspects: (1) domestic seed industry in the development of academic papers and monographs less slightly involved tasted, only from home and abroad on the basis of existing research results, some link or some angles, from the perspective of political economy, the transgenic seed industry as a whole study to analyze the impact on food security system are even scarcer. Accurately grasp the reference on the basis of the development of China's seed industry which placed in the historical process of marketization and internationalization system, a comprehensive, in-depth research of the papers in the history of the development of China's seed industry and foreign experience. (2) The seed industry as an important part of agriculture and agricultural products, for the development of China's agricultural economy, increase farmers' income, as well as poverty alleviation and make an important contribution. Biotechnology fourth technological revolution, the Chinese seed industry and the domestic market will be a significant impact, the seed industry in China in the end there is no advantage and international competitiveness, which is the subject of universal concern. In this thesis, comprehensive use of foreign research results GATP model, in-depth study of genetically modified seeds to China's food security, and on this basis, the use of political and economic theory to explore the direction of the development of China's seed industry, so as to improve the competitiveness of Chinese seed industry's, to promote available sustainable development, and to provide a scientific basis for decision making. (3) the theory and practice of domestic and international agricultural development proved the macro context of the integration of the world economy and international agriculture, genetically modified seeds political and economic influence of China's food security should not be underestimated.
