China's early rice outputs this year have increased
English eastday
China's summer grain and early rice outputs this year have increased for the first time after several years of decline, Vice Premier Hui Liangyu said in Beijing yesterday.

The summer grain and early rice harvests have reached 101.05 billion kilograms and 33.5 billion kg this year, up by 4.8 percent and 14 percent from last year, the vice premier said in a report made at the 11th session of the 10th National People's Congress Standing Committee.

"It is a major turning point for this year's grain production," he said.

Hui was also optimistic about this year's autumn grain production, saying that the total yearlong grain output is likely to reach or surpass the projections made at the beginning of this year.

A series of policies and measures taken by the government to boost agricultural development have taken effect, said Hui. "Farmers' enthusiasm to grow crops has been stimulated and agriculture has been strengthened in macro-control."

Since the second half of last year, while trying to control overheating of some economic sectors, the Chinese government has increased its support for agriculture, transportation and energy sectors.

To encourage farmers to plant more grain, the central government has given direct subsidies to crop growers. In addition, according to the government's No. 1 circular issued early this year, agricultural tax rates will be slashed by one percentage point this year, and taxes on special farm produce, except tobacco leaves, will be abolished.

At the same time, China's local governments have been working hard to clear development zones to make way for grain production, while promoting reform in rural education, science and technology and health care.
