  • Weekly pork prices edge down in Chi...

Pork prices in China went down last week, official data showed.

From Jan. 4 to 7, the average pork price index in 16 provincial-level regions tracked by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (MARA) was 20.22 yuan (3.2 U.S. dollars) per kg, down 6.2 percent week on week.

This figure also represented a year-on-year drop of 56.4 percent.

China released a slew of measures last year to advance sustainable and healthy development in the hog industry, detailing tasks to avoid drastic fluctuations in the market and ensure stable supplies.

In the coming five to 10 years, China will see cyclical market fluctuations effectively alleviated and pork supply security capabilities increased, with an aim to maintain the market's self-sufficiency rate at around 95 percent, according to the guidelines jointly released by government agencies including the MARA.
