BEIJING, July 4 (Xinhua) -- The central government has set aside a 2.58 billion yuan (417.31 million U.S. dollars) subsidy to boost the amount of loans for the agricultural industrialization, the Ministry of Finance said on Thursday.
The money is designed to cut lending interest rates for agricultural industrialization projects so as to boost farm produce supply and farmers' income.
