October 22, 2011

Oct. 22 (Bloomberg) -- China’s Premier Wen Jiabao asked local authorities to step up measures to control food costs as his government strives to curb inflation, according to a statement posted on the government’s website today.

The government will boost reserves and supply of food, impose strict control on “deep processing projects” of corn, provide incentives to stabilize animal-feed prices and increase hog production, Wen said during a trip to Nanning in south China’s Guangxi province, according to the statement.
