BEIJING, March 15 (Xinhua) -- There is an adequate supply of goods on the market in quake-hit Yingjiang County in southwest China's Yunnan Province, with prices basically stable, said the Ministry of Commerce in a statement on its website on Tuesday.

After the deadly quake, the ministry immediately activated the emergency response system and dispatched a working team to the quake-stricken region with an emergency fund of 200,000 yuan (29,850 U.S. dollars) to guide market operations.

The ministry also organized emergency supplies for people stuck in the quake zone. On Friday, the first day after the quake, local commerce departments distributed food, water, tents, crowbars and spades to people in need.

Meanwhile, the ministry required local departments to set up temporary shops to offer daily necessities. By Monday, five local supermarkets had resumed operation, with pork supply restored.

The ministry would continue to help with reconstruction in the county, the statement said.

A 5.8-magnitude earthquake jolted Yingjiang near the border with Myanmar Thursday noon, leaving 25 people dead and more than 250 others injured including 134 seriously. About 127,100 residents have been evacuated to safe areas.
