"Ensuring stable pork supply is one of the most urgent tasks for the country's work on agriculture, rural areas and farmers," Hu said in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang, an important hog production area, Xinhua reported late on Friday.
"All main hog production areas should develop hog production and pork supply plans and fulfil related targets," Hu added. ■
