The provincial government executive meeting held yesterday put forward 11 requirements to stabilize pork prices, ensure food safety and increase breeding assistance.
According to the Provincial Department of Commerce, the purchase price of pigs in our province has continued to rise since June last year. After May this year, the rise accelerated. At the end of June, the purchase price of pigs was 20 yuan / kg, a year-on-year increase of more than 100%. The price of pork also rose all the way. The wholesale price of pork in June was 26.52 yuan / kg, a year-on-year increase of more than 100%, an increase of 42.96% over January this year.
Due to the continuous rise of meat prices in recent years, the market sales volume has decreased recently. On July 1, the transaction volume of the wholesale market in the province decreased by 36.86% compared with the previous week (June 17).
For the rising meat prices, the meeting yesterday put forward 11 requirements to stabilize pork prices. Zhao Zhengyong said that pig farmers are also worried about the large-scale fluctuation of pork prices. They also want the market to be stable and do not want the prices to rise and fall sharply
It is understood that in the second half of 2007, the state issued some policies to support pig production, and some policies have not been implemented so far. "We can't forget the farmers as soon as the situation is good." Zhao Zhengyong warned officials at all levels.
This time, support for production will be carried out from the aspects of increasing insurance, helping enterprises with loans, and monitoring feed price and quality. "Financial institutions should study loan support for pig breeding." Zhao Zhengyong said, and took out certain funds to discount interest.
Due to the rise in feed prices, some farmers reported that "pigs eat more expensive than people". In this regard, Zhao Zhengyong asked to strictly monitor the price and quality of feed.
At present, the logistics cost accounts for a considerable cost in the pork price. Therefore, "the expired highway toll stations should be cancelled and the highway toll should be reduced." Zhao Zhengyong stressed that the circulation cost must be effectively reduced.
In view of the recent food safety problems, Zhao Zhengyong called for severe crackdown according to law, "food safety problems should not be allowed to damage the credibility of the government".
