According to the guideline issued by seven government bodies, including the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, China will enter a period of important strategic opportunity in the next five years as the focus on agriculture turns to higher quality development.

The guideline promoted three main methods as a way to achieve this goal: industrial cooperation, efficiency elevation, and international competitiveness.
