In the late 1970s, China was a very poor country. The rising population, which reached 962 million in 1978, put a severe strain on food supplies. Average calorie intake was only marginally above the minimum survival requirements, particularly in rural areas. Some 250 million people lived in absolute poverty. Transport and infrastructure were primitive. Steel production was still low.
