  my country's grain imports are designed to make up for structural shortages. This is a necessary adjustment based on my country's high grain production and has nothing to do with the so-called "large-scale grain hoarding".

my country must strive to build a coordinated guarantee system for grain production, purchase, storage, and sales, and do everything possible to do a good job in grain production, stabilize grain rations, stabilize corn, expand beans, and expand oil crops, and keep its jobs firmly in its own hands.

  Recently, a foreign media falsely claimed that China was hoarding food on a large scale and maliciously speculating on food prices, causing famine in some countries.

  Since the outbreak of the new crown pneumonia, the speculation of "Chinese demand" by individual foreign media has caused world food prices to rise, and now they have speculated that China's "hoarding of grain" has led to a global food shortage, which is nothing more than making China a burden for rising global food prices and the global food crisis.

China has no reason to recite this pot, and it must never recite it.

  In 2021, my country's grain production won the "Eighteen Lianfeng", maintaining a total of more than 1.3 trillion catties for seven consecutive years.

In recent years, the output of my country's two major rations of wheat and rice has increased steadily, and the balance of wheat production and demand has been slightly surplus. The output of rice has exceeded demand for many years. Corn production will increase significantly in 2021. The supply and demand situation of corn has continued to improve, ensuring basic self-sufficiency of grains and rations. Absolutely safe.

my country's grain imports are aimed at making up for structural shortages and optimizing the supply structure.

This is a necessary adjustment based on my country's high grain production and has nothing to do with the so-called "large-scale grain hoarding". It is purely fictional.

  Looking further, although my country imports a certain amount of grain, it does not grasp the first-hand grain source, but mainly purchases second-hand grain sources from the four major international grain merchants.

my country does not have enough right to speak in the global grain trade, nor does it have the right to price food.

The rise in global food prices since 2020 is mainly the result of various factors such as the continuous spread of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, frequent extreme weather, excess global liquidity, and international capital speculation.

As a grain purchaser, China's procurement behavior is mainly based on actual domestic demand, and according to the international market supply, it adopts standard international trade procurement behaviors, without hoarding, and there is no situation of forced buying and selling.

  Furthermore, from the perspective of import structure, my country's imported grains are mainly soybeans, corn, sorghum, and barley. Imported wheat and rice account for a relatively small proportion, which has a relatively small impact on global wheat and rice trade.

my country is well aware that the global grain trade volume is limited. When importing grain, it fully considers the world's grain supply capacity to ensure that the scale of imports is relatively stable, and has been avoiding sudden large quantities of imports from affecting world food security.

  Be prepared for Yu Yu, as the country's standing way.

my country has always attached great importance to grain reserves. Faced with the complex and volatile domestic and foreign grain market situation, my country has comprehensively strengthened the construction of its grain storage system and strengthened the country's ability to guarantee food security.

At present, my country's grain stocks are sufficient, and the stock-to-consumption ratio is much higher than the international food security warning line. The two major ration stocks of rice and wheat are enough to feed the country for more than one and a half years.

Sufficient inventory is the "ballast stone" to ensure food security, enabling my country to deal with the risks and challenges brought about by various "black swan" and "gray rhino" incidents.

Nevertheless, my country's grain inventory level has not yet reached the highest level in history.

Before the market-oriented reform of grain procurement and storage, due to the long-term implementation of the purchase of rice and wheat at the lowest purchase price and the temporary storage of corn and soybeans, grain purchases and inventories have been rising, and grain inventories have reached the highest level in history. Some grains such as corn and rice There is a periodical surplus of varieties, and most of the grain stocks are concentrated in state-owned grain depots, resulting in a heavy burden on the government's finances and a huge waste of food resources.

Therefore, in recent years, my country has not only not hoarded grain, but has accelerated the destocking of grain. It will not complete the task of destocking temporary storage of corn until the end of 2020, and the pressure of destocking of rice still exists.

From an international perspective, under the food security panic caused by the epidemic, countries have generally increased the size of their reserves, and global food stocks have continued to increase.

  With grain in hand, don't panic in my heart.

Under the impact of the epidemic in the century, the changes in the past century have accelerated and the external environment has become more complex, severe and uncertain. It is a major strategic issue to ensure the supply of primary products.

my country must focus on building a coordinated guarantee system for grain production, purchase, storage, and sales, and do everything possible to do a good job in grain production, stabilize grain rations, stabilize corn, expand soybeans, and expand oil crops, strengthen the “soft underbelly” of food security, enhance grain storage capacity, and accelerate the grain industry High-quality development, firmly holding the rice bowls in their own hands, filling the rice bowls with Chinese grains, consolidating the confidence to ensure the country's food security.

Only by responding to the uncertainty of the international market with the stability of domestic supply, can we better achieve "Let the wind blow and the waves, I will not move."
