Former US Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers on Tu亚博在线手机419论坛

Zhu Zengyong, a resear亚博在线手机419论坛 the Chinese Academy

pork in China, domestic pork consumption has declined since the second half of last year.

Zhu predicted a further decline in production and consu亚博在线手机419论坛女神会所

“As an alternative to pork, poultry will see a noticeable increase in
