To build a strong agricultural country, we should reflect Chinese characteristics, based on China's national conditions, the resource endowment of more people and less land, the historical heritage of agricultural civilization, and the requirements of The Times of harmonious coexistence between man and nature. We should follow our own way, rather than simply copy the model of foreign modern agricultural power. We should rely on our own strength to secure the rice bowl, rely on the double-tier management system to develop agriculture, develop ecological low-carbon agriculture, continue farming civilization, and steadily promote common prosperity. At present, it is necessary to anchor the goal of building an agricultural power, plan and promote the work of "agriculture, rural areas and farmers" scientifically,strengthen the top-level design, and formulate the plan of accelerating the construction of an agricultural power; gradual, slow and steady, do more things to lay the foundation and benefit the long term, take measures according to local conditions, pay attention to practical results, based on the resource endowment and development stage, solve the practical problems of agricultural and rural development and the most strongly reflected by farmers, and do not do face projects divorced from reality.

We will improve the mechanism for ensuring the benefits of grain farmers and the mechanism for compensating the interests of major producing areas. To ensure food security, we need to increase both production and loss, and continue to deepen food conservation actions. We should set up a big food view, build a diversified food supply system, and develop food sources through multiple ways. We must conduct strict assessment and urge all localities to truly shoulder their responsibility for ensuring food security.
