The proposals prepared by Liu Yonghao for the two sessions of this year include a focus on the restoration of hog production capacity, the construction of a smart city, the establishment of a new urban and rural poverty alleviation guarantee system, the settlement of rural arable land, the promotion of local governments to clean up the arrears of enterprises, and the promotion of non-public medical institutions after the epidemic6 Aspects.

Liu Yonghao pointed out that under the influence of African swine fever, China’s live pig inventory declined by 27.5% year-on-year in 2019, and the normalization of the new outbreak of the new crown pneumonia epidemic in this year and the normalization of the African swine fever epidemic have further affected the global pig industry. In a tight state, the price of pigs stayed at a high level for longer than in previous rounds.

In order to boost the resumption of production, Liu Yonghao made four suggestions. On the financial side, Liu Yonghao suggested increasing financial support, setting up a pig industry development mother fund or issuing special national bonds at the national level. By setting up a mother fund for the development of the pig industry at the national level and investing in special sub-funds, the effect of fiscal funds to guide industrial development will be amplified. The fund focuses on supporting the construction of a large-scale, modern, and environmentally-friendly hog breeding base that conforms to the direction of industrial development in the hog breeding industry integration and security supply tasks caused by African swine fever. At the same time, Liu Yonghao said that the central government recently proposed to “issue special national bonds”, and also suggested that a certain amount should be considered for special support for large-scale breeding projects.

In terms of farming methods, Liu Yonghao suggested to support the “gathering of zero” for pig farming land, and promote the settlement farming mode appropriately. Further promote the “colonial breeding mode” in suitable areas to promote the overall transformation and upgrading of the national hog industry. It is suggested that the government should increase the intensity of “integration of zeroes into whole” to assist enterprises to integrate sporadic plots into large-scale pig farms. The land regulation should be handled flexibly on the premise of adhering to the principles to speed up the construction of large-scale pig farms.

At the same time, Liu Yonghao believes that the state can encourage enterprises to play the main role and increase pig breeding technology innovation and talent training. He pointed out that innovative breeding, breeding, and epidemic prevention and control technologies can effectively reduce costs, increase production efficiency, and improve the level of epidemic prevention and control. It is recommended that the state increase financial support and policy guidance, give play to the leading role of enterprises, and accelerate technological innovation in key areas within the pig industry. At the same time, vocational colleges are encouraged to set up a special teaching plan for school-enterprise cooperation, improve the professional education system for professional on-the-job training and junior college upgrades, and cultivate more high-end technical talents in need for smart farming.

Regarding the deployment of breeding pigs, Liu Yonghao hopes to strengthen cross-regional coordination to meet the needs of cross-regional production layout during the recovery period of production capacity. He said that the current hog industry is still in the recovery period of production capacity, and the production capacity and piglet supply of pigs in a single region and province cannot yet achieve self-balance. Within and between large enterprises, cross-regional and inter-provincial deployment of breeding pigs and piglets is needed to achieve a national production layout. It is recommended that during the current capacity recovery period, the state, on the premise of strictly implementing African swine fever prevention and control, innovate policy arrangements to support the encouragement of qualified enterprises to distribute breeding pigs and piglets across provinces and regions within and between enterprises, and optimize the national live pigs Production order.

Regarding the problem of high pork prices that consumers are most concerned about, Liu Yonghao analyzed that the pattern of relative shortage of pork and high prices will still exist this year, but there will be no excess of pork. “In the future, there may be overcapacity, but people will only be able to achieve ‘Pork Freedom’ after prices come down.”
