China is introducing new measures to increase vegetable production and supply, in a bid to help stabilize prices.
On Wednesday, the State Council decided to take measures covering the entire process of vegetable planting, storage, transport, distribution, marketing, quality monitoring and consumption.
The State Council pledged more funds and preferential policies to support the construction of major vegetable production bases across the country. Banks and other financial institutions are encouraged to step up lending to vegetable producers.
The State Council also urged efforts to increase construction of special railway lines, linking production areas with major cities.
