Sun Zhengcai, minister of agriculture, has an article with the title: Pay close attention to grain production; always have ‘grain on hand’ on the Chinese magazine Qiushi website.
Briefly it states that the large magnitude price increases in the international grain market and the challenges world food safety is facing are hot topics that have caught the attention of the international community.
China has had four consecutive years of increased grain production and is having another bumper summer grain harvest this year.
China has ample grain market supply and prices are relatively stable, and that is making a major contribution to world food security and providing important support for the country’s comprehensive economic and social development.
China must increase grain production and agricultural productivity and build a sound and permanent and effective mechanism to support and protect grain and agricultural production.
