Example text

Over the past 50 years, China has made significant efforts to supply appropriate and adequate food and clothing for its growing population. By the early 21st century, China supported 1/5 of the world population with only 1/15 of cultivated land in the world, and the overall food self-sufficiency rate was over 100%. The total number of undernourished people decreased from 193 million in the early 1990s to less than 100 million in the early 21st century. Over the past 50 years, China has made great achievements in agricultural development but also paid a high environmental cost.

In the next 50 years, China will also face tremendous opportunities and great challenges in agricultural modernization and sustainable development.
