“China rings alarm bells again on food security guarantee” “Chinese officials say ‘consolidating and expanding the results of poverty eradication must not go wrong, food security must not go wrong’.  Following the recent release of “Opinions of the State Council of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China on Comprehensively Promoting Rural Revitalization and Accelerating Agricultural and Rural Modernization,” in the Central Government’s No. 1 document in 2021, international public opinion has focused on food security in addition to China’s insistence on achieving rural revitalization and common prosperity. China is the world’s largest food importer, and its food situation is seen as a “stabilizer” and “ballast” for global food security. Therefore, the “red line” of China’s “arable land” is the most important issue.  China’s food production, import volume, “agricultural seeds” safety and even how China eliminates food waste, have become hot topics in international platforms. By comparison, we can find that Japan and South Korea, which belong to the same type of land and population as China, are at the top of the “Global Food Security Index”, and even countries with large populations like India, which are actually better endowed with resources for agricultural development than China, are facing new challenges in terms of food security. This is all the more reason why China’s emphasis on and ensuring food security is of special significance to the world.
