BEIJING -- Members of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) held discussions Thursday aimed at smoothing channels to promote the sale of farm produce, putting forward a number of suggestions to improve the management of production and distribution.

The biweekly seminar held by the CPPCC National Committee was presided over by Wang Yang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the CPPCC National Committee.

The supply of farm produce remains sufficient and prices are stable amid the COVID-19 epidemic, but sales are still hampered by asymmetric information and inadequate infrastructure, according to the seminar attendees.

The CPPCC members suggested building an information-monitoring platform covering the whole chain of production, circulation and consumption, as well as supporting contract farming, in a bid to avoid excessive production.

They also proposed bolstering e-commerce in rural areas, as part of efforts to facilitate the flow of agricultural produce to the cities.

Relevant infrastructure should be improved, said the CPPCC members, noting that preferential policies should be fully delivered and weak links in cold-chain logistics should be shored up.
