  Hunan resolutely rectifies the chaos in the field of grain purchase and sales

  In early December 2021, the official website of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and State Supervision Commission published an article analysing that corruption cases in the field of grain purchase and sales announced across the country involved business supervisory departments and state-owned grain enterprises, covering grain purchase, storage, and sales. The large amount of money involved, the high level of the personnel involved, and the serious consequences of harm, also fully exposed the serious problems of responsibility, corruption, and work style in the field of grain purchase and sales, and even spread in some places and persisted for a long time.

After sorting out, it is found that most of the "top leaders" or key managers in the field of grain purchase and sales have been deeply involved in the grain system for many years, and are familiar with the business of the entire system.

  Peng Mei News found that among the 22 people who were notified for investigation, 15 were born in the 1960s and 7 were born in the 1970s. All of them have worked in the grain purchasing and marketing system for many years, and many of them have served in too many grain depots directly under the central government and local governments. The person in charge of the food station.

  "Sanxiang Fengji Network" once published an article "Hunan Resolutely Rectifies the Chaos in the Field of Grain Purchase and Sales" on November 5, 2021, stating that since the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, discipline inspection and supervision organs at all levels in Hunan Province have focused on the field of grain purchase and sales based on their responsibilities.

Changning National Grain Reserve used the acquisition funds and off-book operating income to set up off-book accounts. Huarong County Fengsui grain purchase and sales limited. The company's county-level grain reserves have been rotated for over 30 months, and Yang Zengxin, the former director of Nanmuping Grain Station of Zhijiang County Grain and Oil Purchase and Sales Company, defrauded and embezzled funds for grain purchases, and was arrested after absconding for 12 years..."

  The report pointed out that from the investigation and handling of the cases, the main root cause of the chaos in the field of grain purchase and sales lies in the ineffective responsibility of the party committee and government in some regions, the supervisory responsibility of the grain management department and the implementation of the grain policy implementation responsibility of state-owned grain enterprises. Public officials have weak sense of discipline and responsibility.

  The circular emphasized that it is necessary to put the investigation and handling of corruption in the field of grain purchases and sales at the top of the special rectification work and run through it throughout. Grain-related corruption issues, such as “circling grain”, first receiving and then transferring, false acquisitions, empty entry and exit, false reporting of losses, eating and taking cards, illegal and illegal sales, etc., strictly investigate the poor implementation of the system, engage in extravagance, play side balls and other responsibility and style issues, Consolidate the atmosphere of "strict" and strengthen the deterrence of "punishment".

Adhere to the integrated promotion of "investigation, reform and governance", not only to find out the problems, but also to analyze the causes in depth, to accurately find the root of the disease, to do a good job of promoting reform through cases, to achieve long-term and long-term governance in the field of grain purchase and sales, and to maintain national food security with strong supervision.
