Government acts to keep food price stable

Statistics from the Board of Trade showed that demands for food surged during the National Day Holiday. Sales of pork, seafood, vegetables were increased by 2.2%, 20%, 5% respectively. But prices were stable due to ample supplies.

Motivated by the demands from hotel wedding and business dinners, the sales of aquatic products amounted to 520 tons in the Jiangdong seafood wholesale market. 600 tons of seafood was sold on National Day alone, hitting a record high in 17 years.

During the weeklong holiday, the government took a series of measures to rein in high prices.
