The second session of the 13th National Peoples Congress opened today. After the session, the ministerial corridor opened again. In explaining the problem of grain production reduction in 2018, Han Changfu, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, said that last year the national grain production declined slightly, but in fact it did not decrease much, accounting for about 0.6% or less than 1% of the total output. Moreover, it was mainly the result of promoting structural reform on the agricultural supply side and initiative adjustment and reduction.
For example, we have subtracted maize from Fujian Bay because it is not the dominant area. It has increased the production of soybeans, potatoes and high-quality forage. In fact, the effective supply has increased. For four consecutive years, our countrys grain output has stabilized at the level of over 1.3 trillion jin, and there has been no big ups and downs.
