Human rights development focuses on individual rights
 
In the morning of October 15 local time, the eve of the 34th World Food Day, Premier Li Keqiang delivered a speech entitled “Promoting Agricultural Modernization Through Family Farming” at the headquarters of the United Nations (UN) Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Rome.
 
Li Keqiang expressed that the theme of this year’s World Food Day is “Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth”. Meeting the food demand through household agriculture also conforms to China’s reality. China’s reform and opening-up started from rural area 30-odd years ago. By implementing the household contract management system and other reforms and developing household agriculture, China has managed to solve the food and clothing problem for the people, helped hundreds of millions people shake off poverty and reached the UN Millennium Development Goals ahead of schedule.
