Posted November 29, 2018 06:00:13When it comes to the food crisis in China, the food industry is the main source of the problem.
For years, Chinese officials have been blaming the country’s economic problems on the countrys food shortage.
This month, though, they finally acknowledged the problem and promised to provide more food to the Chinese people.
In an interview with Reuters, China’s vice-minister of food, Chen Wei, said he hoped the country would receive “some food this year, especially rice and wheat” as the country has a “good agricultural situation.”
Chen said the country was “looking forward to providing food to people.”
He said the government “is looking at several possibilities,” including expanding the distribution of rice and vegetables, which are among the most popular commodities in the country.
Chen added that the government would “work with the industry” to develop “a plan to provide food to all Chinese people.”
In a statement, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) said the food shortages in China are “part of a trend of declining crop yields and increasing food insecurity, which is also contributing to the high rates of chronic hunger in the world’s third-largest economy.”
While China’s official statistics suggest the country is not facing an economic crisis, its officials are using this as an excuse to increase food production and prices, which can be detrimental to the people’s health and well-being.
China’s current crop is so underdeveloped, it only has 1.4 million hectares of farmland to begin with, according to the FAO.
With the Chinese government’s plans to boost production, demand for food in the market will only increase, and more people will be forced to consume less of it.
