China’s National Bureau of Statistics on Dec. 6 announced that this year’s total national grain output reached 682.85 million tons—2% higher than last year. The Chinese media also claimed that this year’s grain production hit a new high.
Last year, Southern China was hit by multiple floods affecting large areas throughout the regions, and the northeast Regions of China got hit many times by typhoons.
This year, the major grain-source Henan province oddly experienced natural disasters like floods, hail, and extreme weather changes.
However, the CCP regime still announced that the summer and autumn cereals would have a “buffer harvest and increase production,” which has caused confusion among Chinese netizens.
According to data from the General Administration of Customs in China, food imports from January to October this year reached 137,956 million tons—nearly 23% higher than last year.
The most important imports are soybeans, corn, and wheat.
Since 2015, China’s grain imports have remained around 100 million tons per year. However, the number of food imports from January to August this year alone exceeded the total of 2019.
Chinese agriculture analyst Ma Wenfeng told RFA that state-owned grain companies in the Northeast haven’t had much inventory in the past two years and their grain warehouses are empty, while the Northeast is one of the main grain production areas in China, ntdtv reported.
Another economist said that China’s grain supply could not meet the people’s actual demand.
The gap between food supply and demand is going to widen. Even so, the CCP doesn’t have any plan to solve food supply and price stabilities for Chinese people. The Chinese regime must pursue economic growth and assert its control over other countries.
