Take the responsibility of ensuring food and energy security and provide solid support for stabilizing the economy and prices

On June 21, Li Keqiang, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and Premier of the State Council, accompanied by Ni Yuefeng, Secretary of the Hebei Provincial Party Committee, and Wang Zhengpu, Governor of Hebei Province, inspected Gaobeidian and Zhuozhou. He emphasized that it is necessary to follow the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, implement the deployment of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, fully implement the new development concept, efficiently coordinate epidemic prevention and control and economic and social development, implement various policies to stabilize the economy, and focus on reform Measures to solve problems and activate power, seize the agricultural season to do a good job of summer harvesting and summer planting, ensure energy supply to meet the peak of summer, and provide solid support for stabilizing prices, people’s livelihood, and economic stability.

In the wheat field in Fangguan Town, Li Keqiang talked with grain farmers, harvesters from other provinces, and grain merchants. Everyone reported that this year’s wheat harvest was good and the grains were full, and Li Keqiang was very happy. He said that now is “a bumper harvest in the field”, and it is necessary to hurry up to harvest “a bumper harvest in hand”, and also to do a good job of collecting and storing a “bumper harvest storehouse”. Wheat is one of the main rations for the Chinese people. This place is basically the last stop for harvesting in the main wheat-producing areas of Huanghuaihai. Overall, this year’s wheat production in the country has increased compared with last year, and a bumper harvest is a foregone conclusion. This gave people reassurance and laid the foundation for stable grain production throughout the year. China’s grain supply is abundant, which is crucial to stabilizing prices. To keep the economy operating within a reasonable range, two important indicators are stable employment and stable prices. Food and energy are the basic support for stable prices. In recent years, we have been implementing a prudent monetary policy without over-issuing money. At present, the main indicators of monetary policy are within the normal range. It is also important to prevent inflation and leave room for flexible implementation of monetary policy in response to new challenges. This year’s bumper wheat harvest has ensured China’s own demand and the stability of China’s grain market, and to a certain extent it has also contributed to the stability of the global grain market. Seeing farmers planting corn by machine, Li Keqiang carefully checked the moisture content. He said that one day late in summer and ten days late in autumn, to implement the area of ​​summer sowing, it should be sown as much as possible to ensure a bumper harvest of autumn grains and add weight to the national food security.

Li Keqiang came to Dapu Village, inspected the drying wheat, sat and talked with the villagers, and calculated the cost of growing grain and the income account together. Everyone reported that the price of agricultural materials has risen this year, but the state has increased subsidies many times, and the market price of food has also increased, so the income is higher than in previous years. Li Keqiang said that the people take food as their heaven, and the food will keep the world safe. You grow grains to increase income and ensure more people have three meals a day. Let’s work together to put the jobs of more than 1.4 billion Chinese people behind bars.

Li Keqiang listened to the report on energy supply guarantee in Hebei Province. In Zhuozhou Jingyuan Thermal Power Company, he learned in detail about the power generation hours, coal consumption levels, and implementation of bailout policies. Li Keqiang said that development is the foundation and key to solving all problems in our country. Now is the critical period for the peak summer season. It is necessary to release advanced coal production capacity, open as much as possible, implement long-term coal supply, further strengthen power supply guarantee, resolutely prevent power outages, and ensure economic operation and basic people’s livelihood. It is necessary to increase the production capacity of efficient and clean coal power in an orderly manner through expansion and transformation, and accelerate the construction of pumped storage projects, which not only increases the power supply capacity, but also provides support for the development of new energy sources such as wind and photovoltaics, and the improvement of consumption capacity. He emphasized that my country is a contributor and beneficiary of world trade, and the stability of the international energy market is beneficial to all countries. Making good use of my country’s coal-based energy resource endowment is not only conducive to enhancing its own energy security capabilities, but also conducive to world energy prices and The international industrial chain and supply chain are stable.
