China will intensify efforts to tackle problems restricting the development of family farms, an official said Wednesday.
 
Governments at all levels should support the construction of warehouses, ice storehouses and other infrastructures to boost the development of family farms, Zhao Yang, an official with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, told a press conference.
 
Preferential fiscal and tax policies will be formulated to family farms and more training will also be introduced, he added.
 
Family farms are engaged in large-scale, standardized and intensive agricultural production and management in China.
 
The country aims to set up more quality family farms as it tries to improve agricultural efficiency and raise farmers' incomes.
 
By the end of 2018, 600,000 family farms had been registered, with their annual sales reaching 194.6 billion yuan (about 27.5 billion U.S. dollars).
