HARBIN, Aug. 20(Xinhuanet)-- China has marvelously succeeded in raising its grain output steadily through the introduction of reform and opening-up drive, along with the development of agrosciences.

The remark was made by Nourddin Mona, China Representative of the Food and Agricultural Organization(FAO) of the United Nations, who is here in this northeast Chinese province attending a forum on cold and black soil held in Harbin, the provincial capital.

"China is no threat to the world in terms of grain or food security," said the FAO China representative,"because the country, despite its vast population, has solved its food problem in an exemplary way by following a path of reform, opening-up and unremittently developing agriculture through science and technology."

Statistics and a great number of agricultural bases prove Chinais capable of producing grain not only enough to feed its population sufficiently, but also to export to overseas markets, said Mona.

Because of its miracle of success, China has been cited as an example of success by UN in advocating the Millennium Development Plan, the FAO China representative said.

"In addition to grain security, China has also made fast progress in eradicating poverty on its territory," Mona added, who promised that he would make a suggestion to the FAO headquarters calling for more cooperation with China in agriculture, such as sending experts to help China train agri-technical workers and farmers with modern technologies.
