China on Monday unveiled guidelines to make a series of improvements to its dairy industry.

By 2020, the country should have achieved substantial results in the supply-side structural reform of the dairy industry and made marked progress in modernizing the sector, according to guidelines released by the General Office of the State Council.

Milk self-sufficiency should be maintained above 70 percent, according to the guidelines.

The guidelines said quality, competitiveness and the reputation of infant formulas must be significantly improved, and dairy supplies should better match demand, with consumers having stronger confidence in the country's products.

By 2025, the dairy industry should have been "invigorated in an all-round manner," with milk supplies, dairy processing and quality, and industrial competitiveness at world-leading levels.

High quality and green development should be the goal of the dairy industry's development, said the guidelines, which laid out measures to improve cow breeding, dairy processing, product distribution and quality supervision.
