Chinese authorities could dip into strategic pork reserves in a bid to rein in prices of the staple meat, Beijing's top economic planner said on Tuesday (Jul 5).
สล็อตxoวอเลท The important thing not to forget is to budget how much to play on the day and to play only on this budget. To prevent you from losing even harder.
Pork prices in the world's second-biggest economy spiked late last month, with the meat selling for 32 per cent more than in June 2021 as market supplies dropped, state media Xinhua News Agency reported.
The spike came on the back of "irrational behaviours such as blindly holding supplies and reluctance to sell in the live pig market", the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) said in a notice on social media.
The NDRC said that reluctance was aimed at boosting profits and ordered major suppliers to slaughter pigs at a "regular pace", warning them against hoarding, Xinhua said.
On Tuesday, the commission added that it was "looking into a release of central pork reserves".
It has also instructed local governments to release supplies "in a timely manner" to guard against sharp price hikes.
China has largely been spared the impact of a global surge in food prices caused by Russia's war in Ukraine.
