The Ministry of Land and Resources published the "Communiqué on Land and Resources of China 2008" on March 30. The communiqué shows that in 2008, the net decrease of arable area in China (excluding Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan) slowed down.

China had a total of 1.82574 billion mu of arable land at the end of 2008, recording a net decrease of 290,000 mu. Investment in geological exploration maintained a relatively high level. Geological ore prospecting has achieved significant progress and 209 large and medium-sized mineral deposits have been discovered.
