Xinhua: Grain shortfall to continue, worry for supply ruled out

From Xinhuanet:

Expecting another year of grain yield shortfall, China will make efforts to fill the gap by enhancing the productivity of its farmland and increasing grain import, a financial official said Monday.

Chen Xiwen, deputy director of the Office of the Central Financial Work Leading Group, said at a press conference in Beijing that China’s annual grain yield failed to meet its domestic demand since 2000 and the condition is expected to continue this year.

The storage in the country, however, is still “abundant” and so there should be no worry on the supply, Chen said.
