Agriculture still vital to China


09:55, December 29, 2011

BEIJING, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Hui Liangyu said Wednesday China must avoid mishaps in supply of major farm produce because agriculture is vital to ensure stable price levels, fast economic growth and social stability.

Hui said the agricultural sector has witnessed continuous, comprehensive and faster development this year, which has played a key role in curbing inflation and maintaining social stability.

"We will promote agricultural modernization as we push forward industrialization and urbanization," Hui said at the annual central conference on rural work that concluded Wednesday in Beijing.

Scientific and technological advancement and transformation of the agriculture growth pattern will be the key and fundamental solutions to developing a modern agriculture, as environment and resources impose greater constraints, Minister of Agriculture Han Changfu said.

The vice premier also highlighted the effective supply of farm produce, fiscal spending on infrastructure building, and farmers' livelihoods as the major fields on which the country will work next year.

Government data showed grain output rose to record high 571.21 million tonnes this year. The figure represented a year-on-year increase of 4.5 percent and marked the eighth consecutive year of growth for the country's grain output.
