Recently, the general office of the provincial government has issued Opinions on Accelerating Supply-side Structural Reform in Agriculture to Promote the Development of Grain Industry, which demands that by 2022, the province is to construct a preliminary modern grain industry system with rational structure and striking features, and that the total output value of the grain industry in the whole province is to exceed 100 billion yuan, the quantity of grain processing is to reach 12 million tons or above, and there will be 40-odd grain enterprises with their main business income hitting 0.5 billion yuan or above, so as to develop a series of famous brands, leading enterprises and industrial clusters with strong market competitiveness.
The weak foundation of the grain industry in our province is out of pace with the development of Zhejiang as a strong economic province and a strong province with great grain sales. With great efforts in the past two years, the province has seen some growth in grain industry, with the total output value reaching 54.9 billion yuan in 2017, at a growth rate of 19%. Yet there still exist some problems such as poor industrial structure and short industrial chain. As it is a comprehensive systematic project to promote the development of grain industry, it requires the cooperation of many departments and stronger policy support. The Opinions has clarified the responsibilities of each related department and demands joint efforts between the departments to promote the development of grain industry.
