hina will intensify efforts to make its hog farming sector safer and ensure stable supplies after the industry has
上海419been seriously affected by African swine fever outbreaks, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs said on Thursday.
“We will place equal importance on disease prevention and control and on pork output to st
abilize hog production and try to guarantee market supplies,” Vice-Minister of Agriculture and Rural Af上海419
fairs Yu Kangzhen said at a news conference organized by the State Council Information Office.上海419
Yu was elaborating on a guideline released by the State Council on Wednesday regarding intensifying prevention and control of African swine fever.
Outbreaks of the fever have been effectively contained in China in recent months following strict controls and prevent
上海419品茶微信ion efforts taken since early August after the first domestic outbreak of the disease was reported. But the co
untry still faces severe challenges in the disease’s prevention and control, and sustained efforts are needed, he said.
Yang Zhenhai, chief of the ministry’s Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Medicine Bureau, said monit上海419
oring has shown the number of live hogs in China fell by nearly 23 percent year-on-year in May due to the outbreaks.
The ministry will work with related authorities to urge local governments to implement policies and m上海419品茶微信
easures designed to support hog raising, including offering preferable loans to hog farmers and cash subsidies to those wh
上海419ose animals were slaughtered due to swine fever prevention and control measures, he said.
The authorities will encourage hog farmers to replenish stock and organize technicians to hel
p them solve problems in hog raising. Meanwhile, the ministry will guide local authorities to help hog fa上海419品茶微信

mmon practice in many places－to reduce the chance of the spread of disease, Yang said.上海419品茶微信

“In general, the frequency of swine fever outbreaks has noticeably decreased, and hog p
roduction, transport and distribution are gradually being restored,” Yu said.

When the flurry subsided, Berry began to pull the net up and pick carp from it one by one.
Repeating this process one or two times, they had enough carp to deliver to the nearby Kentucky Fish Center owned by An
gie Yu, who also operates Two Rivers Fisheries, the largest Asian carp processor and exporter in the United States.
Berry and Irwin, half-brothers originally from Washington, came to Kentucky to fish for Asian carp in November.
Irwin is a commercial fisherman who has worked all over the world, most recently in Ala
ska during the summer. For three months, he worked 20 – to 22-hour days in Alaskan wate
rs. The pay was good enough to cover a year’s worth of living expenses, but the work was extremely hard.
One day, Irwin read an internet article about Asian carp and commercial fishing in Kentucky, and immediately became interested.
Gujarat in late 2001, the state was wracked with violence in which more than 1,000 people — mostly Muslims — were killed.
Although his critics say Modi didn’t do enough to stop the violence, he has always denied any involvement and has never be

Now after five years at the helm, he is struggling to retain the support that
saw his spectacular rise in 2014 — in contrast to his Pakistani counterpart. Imran Kh
an, the former cricket star, has been in power in neighboring Pakistan for little over half a year.

China and the United States are expected to come to an agreement soon over trade frictions, analysts said, as the negotiating teams a
re reported to be discussing the wording of an accord and considering applying the brakes to their tariff standoff.
They made the prediction after Chinese and US officials said there had been concrete p
rogress on multiple issues in the latest round of trade talks in Washington.
During the latest talks, held from Thursday to Sunday in Washington, the seventh round since February of last year, th
e two sides focused on the text of an agreement, the Chinese delegation said, according to a Xinhua News Agency report.
The negotiators also had made substantial progress on such specific issues as technology transfers, protection of i
ntellectual property rights, nontariff barriers, the service industry, agriculture and exchange rates, the delegation said.
On the basis of the latest progress, the two sides are expected to continue their work
into the next stage, in accordance with the instructions of the two countries’ top leaders, according to Xinhua.
If Europe’s leaders, diplomats and security professionals had a vote in the 2020 US presidential elections, it doesn’t see
