13 January 2012

CHINA - China will significantly improve logistics in its grain production industry by 2015 as part of the country's efforts to tackle the challenges they currently face to ensure food security, a senior agriculture official said yesterday.

According to Trading Charts, grain storage capacity will also grow 20 million tonnes before 2015 through the building of new depots in major grain production bases, and the country's western region, Nie Zhenbang, head of the State Administration of Grain (SAG) said.

Senior agriculture officials have said that ensuring sufficient supply of agricultural products and stabilising grain prices form the foundation of steady economic growth.

Agricultural ministry data shows the country is now 100 per cent self-sufficient in production of the three staple grains - rice, wheat and corn.
