China's food security well guaranteed: premier
China's food security is well guaranteed on the whole, and China will make sure that the rice bowls of its 1.4 billion people will always be firmly held in their own hands, Premier Li Qiang said Monday.
The annual grain output in China has remained steady at over 650 million tons for eight years in a row, Li told a press conference.
He said the country will further increase its grain production capacity by focusing on two key factors — arable land and seeds.
Encouraging farmers to produce more grains, Li said government policies in support of grain production will only increase, not decrease.
