Li Keqiang picked up a piece of soil by the dry reservoir in Jiangxi: there is a lot of drought here!
Li Keqiang inspected the drought in Jiangxi on the morning of November 14. As soon as he got off the plane, the Prime Minister went straight to the Yamada Reservoir in Jingdezhen. According to reports, the reservoir was built in 1958, the current water volume is the lowest in the same period of history. At the edge of a dry reservoir, Li Keqiang squatted down and picked up a piece of soil and said, "it's a lot of drought here!" He put forward specific requirements for the local construction of water conservancy and water-saving irrigation, demanding that the losses caused by the drought be minimized. Grain production has always been an issue of great concern to the Prime Minister. He came to a nearby late rice field and asked the farmers about the price of rice, the harvest, the cost of growing grain, and so on. The prime minister said: agriculture is the foundation of the foundation, and we must protect the enthusiasm of farmers in growing grain and firmly hold the rice bowls of nearly 1.4 billion people in their own hands. The prime minister also successively walked into the homes of two nearby villagers to carefully understand the villagers' income, working, and so on. He was particularly concerned about how often they could eat meat, and opened the curtain to look at the leftovers. He went to the front and back of the house to see if he had pigs and poultry. Villagers told the prime minister that only a few ducks were raised because of the high price of pigs. The prime minister told local officials that the state supports both large-scale pig farming and free farming by farmers.
