  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CH2021-0121

On September 23, 2021, China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (MARA) published its Interim Implementation Plan to Manage Swine Production Capacity which provides management targets for the swine sector. The plan took effect on September 19, 2021 and provides targets for province-by-province sow inventories and the number of large-scale licensed swine farms. Though China’s swine inventory is shaped by many factors, the apparent aim of the plan is to manage the swine sector and moderate supply swings for swine and pork production while facilitating sector concentration.
