To launch the price linkage mechanism in an all-round way, Li Keqiang demanded to ensure the basic livelihood of the people in need.
Premier Li Keqiang presided over an executive meeting of the State Council on 6 November and stressed: "all localities should comprehensively activate the linkage mechanism between social assistance and security standards and rising prices, and issue temporary price subsidies to people in need in a timely manner. To ensure their basic lives. "
On the same day, the meeting heard a report on the current agricultural work and called for consolidating the agricultural foundation, ensuring the supply of important agricultural products, and stabilizing prices.
Responsible persons of relevant departments reported that since the beginning of this year, all localities and relevant departments have conscientiously implemented the arrangements of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council, agricultural production has been generally stable, a bumper grain harvest for the whole year has become a foregone conclusion, and output will be stable at more than 1.3 trillion jin. Various measures to resume pig production are being implemented at a faster pace, and important agricultural products are developing steadily. However, recently, the prices of some "vegetable baskets" have risen rapidly, which has had an impact on the lives of the masses.
"We say to keep the economy running in a reasonable range, including basically stable employment and synchronized income growth, and prices affect the growth of real income." "it is very important to ensure the stable operation of the macro-economy and stabilize prices," the prime minister said. "
All localities and departments should attach great importance to the work of stabilizing prices and ensuring supply, especially food prices.
Li Keqiang said that China is still a developing country, and ordinary people still account for a large proportion of their income on food and clothing, while food prices account for a large proportion of CPI. Recently, the increase in some food prices has been relatively high, which has had an impact on the basic livelihood of the masses, especially those in need. All localities and departments must proceed from the overall macro situation and attach great importance to the work of stabilizing prices and ensuring supply, especially food prices.
"how to stabilize prices, we must have new ideas and methods." The prime minister said, "We should no longer use the planned economy to control prices, but should pay more attention to the use of market methods to ensure stable prices."
On the same day, the meeting decided that it was necessary to properly implement the system of overall responsibility for the province and the mayor of the "vegetable basket", continue to take more measures and resume pig production, and thoroughly clean up the unreasonable prohibition regulations in various localities. We should make use of the conditions such as the bumper harvest of corn in the north to better ensure the feed supply in the big provinces of pigs in the south, give full play to the role of reserve regulation, promote the production of poultry, beef and mutton, ensure market supply, standardize market order, and curb the excessive rise in the prices of some products.
Hold the rice bowls of nearly 1.4 billion people firmly in their hands
Li Keqiang stressed: grain is the lifeblood of the country and is the foundation of the foundation. We should not relax our efforts to do a good job in grain production and firmly hold the rice bowls of nearly 1.4 billion people in their own hands.
"China's agricultural production conditions are fragile, natural disasters such as droughts and floods occur frequently, and irrigation and water conservancy facilities are relatively weak. At the same time, many small-scale peasant economies, which are still one-third of an acre of land, cannot withstand large fluctuations in the international market. We should have a clear understanding of this." Li Keqiang said.
He demanded that we step up efforts to do a good job in agricultural production this winter and next spring, strengthen the work of all relevant departments in ensuring power supply, agricultural material supply, and transportation, promote the construction of irrigation and water conservancy and high-standard farmland, and further consolidate the agricultural foundation.
On the same day, the meeting decided that we should not relax our efforts to do a good job in grain production and resolutely put our rice bowls in our own hands. In accordance with the requirements of stable area, excellent structure, and improving quality, we should do a good job in autumn and winter seeds, do a good job in drought resistance in summer and autumn areas in southern China, strengthen field management of overwintering crops and disaster prevention and mitigation of agriculture and animal husbandry, and promote a bumper harvest of agricultural and livestock products next year. We will consolidate the foundation for price stability and the increase in farmers' income. In order to strengthen the construction of irrigation and water conservancy this winter and next spring and speed up the repair of water conservancy projects damaged by disasters, major water conservancy projects that have the conditions should be started as soon as possible, and agricultural production conditions should be continuously improved. We have the ability to ensure that grains are basically self-sufficient and that rations are absolutely safe.
In order to enhance grain production capacity and promote the construction of high-standard farmland, the meeting also decided on the same day: first, to highlight the protection of cultivated land, land fertility enhancement, and efficient water-saving irrigation, and to achieve the goal of building 1 billion mu of high-standard farmland by 2022. In order to stabilize and ensure more than 1 trillion jin of grain production capacity. The second is to establish and improve the stable growth mechanism of farmland construction investment, and increase the land transfer income and local government bonds to support the construction of high-standard farmland. Adopt a variety of ways to attract social forces to participate in the construction. The third is to explore the reasonable farming system of the combination of land and land to ensure that the quantity and quality of high-standard farmland do not decrease.
