Zhongxin Finance, May 16. On the 16th, the State Council Information Office held a press conference on the operation of the national economy in April. Fu Linghui, spokesman of the National Bureau of Statistics and director of the National Economic Comprehensive Statistics Department, said that despite the recent increase in consumer prices However, in general, the market supply capacity of my country's goods and services is relatively sufficient, and there are more favorable conditions for maintaining price stability.

  First, there is a foundation for food price stability.

Recently, international food prices have been rising, but domestic prices have remained generally stable.

my country's grain production has been stable at more than 1.3 trillion kilograms for seven consecutive years, and the inventory is relatively sufficient.

The two ration varieties of rice and wheat have exceeded the demand for many years, and a small amount of imports are mainly due to variety adjustment.

There is a certain import volume of corn and soybeans, which will be affected by the international market to a certain extent, but the impact is limited.

Since the beginning of this year, my country's grain production situation has continued to improve, and grain prices have remained stable with a good foundation.

At present, the production capacity of live pigs is relatively sufficient, and the price of pork is still declining year-on-year. In the later stage, affected by the gradual adjustment of the production capacity of live pigs, the price of pork will rebound, but the extent is limited.

  Second, the energy supply is stable and guaranteed.

my country has a relatively high proportion of oil and natural gas outsourcing, and rising international energy product prices will increase import costs to a certain extent, bring imported impacts to some industries, and increase the pressure on cost-driven price increases.

However, it should be noted that my country's main energy source is coal, and my country's coal reserves are relatively abundant and its production capacity is relatively strong.

With the gradual release of advanced coal production capacity, it will help curb the rise in energy prices.

Judging from the situation in April, the year-on-year increase in my country's coal mining and washing industry prices fell by 0.5 percentage points from the previous month.

In April, my country's coal output increased by 10.7% year-on-year.

  Third, the supply capacity of most industrial consumer goods is sufficient.

my country has a complete industrial system and strong supporting capabilities, and the output of major industrial products ranks in the forefront of the world, laying a solid foundation for product price stability.

Judging from the data in April, the prices of industrial consumer goods rose by 3.9% year-on-year, an increase of 0.4 percentage points from the previous month, and the increase was mainly due to the impact of gasoline and diesel prices.

The price of industrial consumer goods after deducting energy increased by 0.1% month-on-month and 0.7% year-on-year, both of which were relatively low, indicating that my country's industrial consumer goods supply capacity is relatively abundant.

  In addition, service consumption is still recovering, the price increase is relatively low, and the market is increasing efforts to ensure supply and price stability. In general, my country has a good foundation for price stability.
