QUOTABLE

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - NATION DIGEST -

“Feed­ing a pop­u­la­tion of more than 1 bil­lion should al­ways be at the top of the gov­ern­ment’s agenda. We should not for­get the past, when the peo­ple were starv­ing, and mis­place op­ti­mism just be­cause we are welloff. We should also be aware of the pres­sure of main­tain­ing food se­cu­rity de­spite the con­sec­u­tive an­nual in­creases in grain yield.”

min­is­ter of agri­cul­ture, talked about the im­por­tance of main­tain­ing food se­cu­rity in an ar­ti­cle pub­lished in Peo­ple’s Daily on Sun­day.
