Cotton output touches 6mn tons in 2006

Mar '07
In 2006, the national economy maintained steady and fast growth. The Central Party Committee and the State Council adopted a series of macro-economic control policies and measures in a timely manner to target the outstanding problems, which emerged in economic development. These policies and measures proved to be effective and helped the economic development avoid moving from speedy growth to over-heating. The economic and social development made a good start for the implementation of the 11th Five-Year Plan.

According to preliminary estimation, the gross domestic product (GDP) for the year was 20,940.7 billion yuan, up by 10.7 percent at comparable prices, which is 0.3 percentage point higher than that in the previous year. Of this total, the value added of the primary industry was 2,470.0 billion yuan, up by 5.0 percent; that of the secondary industry was 10,200.4 billion yuan, up by 12.5 percent; and that of the tertiary industry was 8,270.3 billion yuan, up by 10.3 percent. In terms of the four different quarters, the GDP growth was 10.4 percent, 11.5 percent, 10.6 percent and 10.4 percent respectively.

1. Agricultural Production Kept a Steady Growth with a Bumper Grain Harvest. In 2006, the total output of grain surpassed 490 million tons. The output of cotton was 6.73 million tons, up by 17.8 percent over the previous year. Despite the influence of epidemic diseases, the animal and husbandry industry kept fast growth. The total outputs of meat and eggswere expected to reach 80 million tons and 29.5 million tons, up by 4.5 percent and 3.0 percent respectively over the previous year.
