On the eve of the fifth Harvest Festival of Chinese Farmers, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, Chinese President and Chairman of the Central Military Commission Xi Jinping sent congratulations and sincere greetings to a large number of Chinese farmers.
“This year, we avoided the negative impact of the autumn rains and autumn floods in the north that we had last year, as well as the late planting of winter wheat on large areas, but we also avoided the local occurrence of covid-19 epidemics. We also responded to the challenges of extreme heat and drought in some parts of southern China. We have achieved an increase in the production of summer grain and early rice, and we are expected to have another big grain harvest,” Xi said, according to the China Media Group (CMG).
He called on Party committees and governments at all levels to implement the major policies and decisions of the CPC Central Committee on work related to agriculture, rural areas and farmers, to strengthen food security, stabilize the fundamentals of agriculture, consolidate and expand achievements in poverty reduction, solidly promote rural revitalization and promote the creation of more prosperous rural areas, happier lives and more beautiful rural areas.
