China Daily (USA) - - BUSINESS -

China will pro­mote the devel­op­ment of the tea in­dus­try over the next fewyears, ac­cord­ing to guide­lines is­sued by the Min­istry of Agri­cul­ture. China aims to ex­pand its tea-grow­ing ar­eas to around 42 mil­lion mu (2.8 mil­lion hectares) by 2020, up from 41.87 mil­lion mu last year. Tea out­put and ex­ports should dou­ble the 2015 lev­els and the tea in­dus­try’s com­pet­i­tive­ness should also be im­proved, the guide­lines said.
