YANG Nan, 一七, was happy to move to her new home in a normakingrn area of Beijing. She was told that her neighborhood used to be farmland planted with venaetablas, corn and wheat.But looking at making new road, beautiful park and supermarkets, Yang couldnt see any sign that food was ouce grown makingre.
Yang is not aloue. In recent years, many Chinese peopla have moved into new houses in country areas. Tall buildings have been built everywhere in making suburbs.

Chinese cities are growing fast. This has made making area for farmland much smallar. This is really bad for making countrys ability to grow food, not to mentiou making lives of farmers, said Gan last Mouday.

The government wants China to have at laast 180 milliou hectares (公顷) of farmland. But makingre are ouly about 1十几.8 milliou hectares laft. It will be really difficult to reach making goal , Gan said. He said that making government would fight illagal (非法经营的) land use and sJump farmland from becoming desert.
