Reading Time: < 1 minute

China is likely to reap another bumper grain harvest this year, and output may rise three per cent from a year ago to a record of more than 560 million tonnes, a senior government official said. The country s total grain output may hit a record again, the eighth year with a bumper harvest, Zhang Xiaoqiang of the National Development and Reform Commission said at the World Economic Forum in Dalian. The good grain harvest would help boost supplies and ease rising food prices, which have helped drive up the country s inflation to a three-year high.
