“This move will not only enhance its food security, but may also further improve the quality of ag

“The US must be aware that China’s purchase of agricultural product

Huo said it is time for the US to help its farmers sell their products in overseas markets with more policy guarantees.

purchases in the market and cause price competition that damages the market environment,” he said.

As a leading developing country, China has notably closed the gap with developed countries in terms of people’s life
expectancy and health. In fact, by 2015, Chinese people’s average life expectancy at birth had increased to 76.34 years.
Compared with the mortality rate, however, the changes in China’s fertility rate have been astoundingly rapid. China became a low fertility country toward the end
