Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 808
Chapter 808 – Grain depots become Warehouses
Feng Yu knew that Zhang Ruiqiang might havethought of something from his expression.
“Our Tai Hua Trading’s newly rentedwarehouse was formerly grain depot. It was used to store soybean oil.” Feng Yusmiled.
Grain depots were used to store grains andcooking oil. Tai Hua Trading had rented a warehouse that was formerly used tostore soybean oil.
“You are saying telling me to let you rentthe whole grain storage?” Zhang Ruiqiang stared at Feng Yu.
“You want to let us rent half of it?” FengYu rolled his eyes.
Zhang Ruiqiang knew that the grain depot inthe city was not full. When the State Administration of Grain was still around,this grain depot had never been full. During that time, the country was poor,and people do not have enough to eat. There was no way for them to store grainsfor emergency.
But the depot was at least half full. ZhangRuiqiang does not know that the depot had been rented out. Government subsidiesfor grain storage were given to the provincial government in advance.
The higher-up’s requirement for Longjiangprovince to have a backup of 60 million KG of grains and 10,000 tons of cookingoil. This requirement had been lowered. In the past, the requirements for the Longjiangprovince was 85 million KG. But due the bountiful harvest in the past fewyears, the requirements were lowered.
The reserve grains were used to regulatethe grain prices. Once the prices of the grains in the market fall below theminimum price, the Provincial Government will buy the grains and keep as a reserve.If the market prices rise too high, the government will sell off their reserveto lower the prices.
The subsidies for this grain depot includeinterest subsidies, transportation subsidies, price difference subsidies, etc.All these subsidies were given out by the Provincial Government. The governmentwill not care if there is a surplus. But if there is a shortfall, theprovincial government will interfere.
Feng Yu was telling Zhang Ruiqiang toincrease the grains reserve? No. Feng Yu was hinting that the grain reserve isinsufficient!
Feng Yu saw Zhang Ruiqiang’s face turnedblack and asked. “You don’t know about this?”
“I do not know about this in the past. Butnow, I know. It seems like I need to conduct a thorough investigation!”
Feng Yu immediately say. “You all can goand investigate all you want. We have paid the rental and signed the leaseagreement. If we are not allowed to rent those warehouses, you all mustcompensate us 3 times the rental!”
“I will use other warehouses to exchangewith you!” Zhang Ruiqiang retorted. 3 times the rental? You might as well gorob the bank!
Feng Yu nodded. “That’s more like it. Iwill provide you a list. You can investigate based on the list.”
Zhang Ruiqiang stares at Feng Yu. “How manygrain depots did you all rent as warehouses?”
“Not a lot. You should also know that ourTai Hua Food products are also selling animal feeds. We need warehouses thatare damp-proof and fire-proof. Grain depots are the most suitable. We havebasically rented most of the grain depots in the province. You can check itbase on the list, and it will save you a lot of trouble! Also, don’t try toconfiscate my animal feeds in those depots. I will also promise you that I willnot use our grains to pretend to be those depot’s reserve.”
Zhang Ruiqiang’s eyes were twitching.”Pretend to be reserve? I know how to inspect those depots. This is not a smallproblem!”
During the depot inspection last year,there were no issues. So, the people there can make use of other people’sgrains to pretend as reserves. After the check is over, the grains will be shipaway. This is a severe breach!
“That’s right. All the rental contracts forthe various depots are the same. The Government must settle this for us. We aretaxpayers and victims.” Feng Yu said.
“I will settle your warehouse issues. Giveme the list immediately!” Zhang Ruiqiang gritted his teeth.
“Why are you shouting at me? I am not theone who lied to you.”
“You dare to say your rental of thosedepots is not lower than the market price? You dare to say that you don’t knowthat the depots are all empty? You will make up for the difference in thewarehouse rental!” Zhang Ruiqiang shouted furiously.
Feng Yu knew about the grain storage, andhow can he not know that there are problems with the Provincial grain’sreserves?
“Fine, fine, fine……. I will make up thedifference. Do I look like I lack money? You talk like I am purposely takingadvantage of the government. If I don’t tell you about this, will you know?”
Feng Yu also did not know about this in thefirst place. He only found out about the warehouses after Zhang Ming and WuZhigang rented those warehouses. Were the rentals much lower than regularrates? Not really. They only rented those warehouses because they weredamp-proof and fire-proof. Feng Yu will not do anything illegal just to savesome money.
Secretary Liu heard Feng Yu and ZhangRuiqiang shouting in the office and quickly ran in. What happened? How comethey are arguing suddenly?
“Manager Feng, I will get you a new cup of tea.”Secretary Liu looked at his boss and wonders what had happened.
“Brother Liu, your leader is too much. I amhelping him, and he turns around and blame me for it.” Feng Yu took a big gulpof tea.
“Fine. I have wronged you. Happy?” AlthoughZhang Ruiqiang was frustrated, he still apologized to Feng Yu.
“Eh… Alright. I forgive you. Brother Liu,this tea taste nice. Help me pack some. I want to bring it back to my father.”Feng Yu replied.
“Manager Feng, this is only ordinary tealeaves. You can afford all the tea leaves in the world. Stop joking with me.”Secretary Liu said. Why does this Manager Feng always want to bring somethingback whenever he comes?
“It is different. My father does not likethe tea leaves I bought. But he will love it if I tell him that I got the tealeaves from our leader.” Actually, Feng Xingtai was the same as Feng Yu. Theydo not know anything about tea. Their impression of tea was ‘the tea drank bythe leaders must be a good tea.’
“Let him bring back that tin of tea leaves.Pack up and prepare the car.” Zhang Ruiqiang said.
Secretary Liu was not surprising that the leaderwas willing to give Feng Yu his best tea leaves. But why does the leader needthe car? This is not in today’s schedule. From Zhang Ruiqang’s expression, somethingterrible must have happened.
That conman was arrested, and someone hadgone over there to settle it. Why is the Leader going there too?
5 minutes later, Feng Yu walked out ofZhang Ruiqiang’s office with a tin of tea leaves. Many people saw him andgreeted him. Feng Yu returned their greeting with a smile. He feels like he isa Leader in the City Government now.
Many people in the City Government werediscussing Feng Yu. Zhang Ruiqiang and Feng Yu were very close. Every time FengYu walks out of Zhang Ruiqiang’s office, he will be bringing some of ZhangRuiqiang’s personal collection out. But this was also because he is ManagerFeng. No one else can do this.
After boarding his car, Feng Yu immediatelycall Zhang Ming and Wu Zhigang to tell them to prepare the list of their rentedwarehouses. They must also be prepared to move out of those warehouses.
Feng Yu had done what he was supposed to.He had already reminded Zhang Ruiqiang, and that’s all he can say.
