Autumn harvest helps stabilize prices

(People's Daily Overseas Edition)

14:06, October 17, 2011

Edited and Translated by Han Shasha, People's Daily Online

The grain output in northeastern China is estimated at more than 110 billion kilograms, an increase of 13.5 billion kilograms from last year, which means China has seen a bumper harvest for its eighth consecutive year.

The theme for World Food Day, which falls on Oct. 16 this year, is "Food Prices: From Crisis to Stability."

Large quantities of corn and rice are expected to stabilize food prices in China. With the increasing rigid demand of food, China must develop modern agriculture and increase grain output to stabilize food prices.
