With Heilongjiang's grain inventory at a record high, it is urgent to make room to procure the new grain harvest coming up in a few months. Officials worry that dissatisfaction will spread if farmers are unable to sell their grain.
The meeting had four main recommendations.
- Make great efforts to construct integrated grain processing and storage projects to absorb grain.
- Push forward policies to develop dairy, beef, hog, and poultry production in Heilongjiang to boost the demand for feed grain.
- Take advantage of the upcoming annual meeting where leaders from various provinces negotiate on grain purchases and sales to move as much grain as possible to other provinces.
- Lobby central government departments by suggesting ways to de-stock Heilongjiang's grain inventory.
