Rural Vitalization Strategy
According to General Secretary Xi Jinping’s report to the 19th CPC National Congress, China must prioritize the development of agriculture and rural areas to implement the rural vitalization strategy. To build rural areas with thriving businesses, pleasant living environments, social etiquette and civility, effective governance and prosperity, the country need to put in place sound systems, mechanisms and policies for promoting integrated urban-rural development, and accelerate the modernization of agriculture and rural areas.
In 2018, ministries and commissions under the State Council actively began designing policies to implement the rural vitalization strategy. At the Two Sessions, approaches to deepening agricultural supply-side structural reform and realizing strong agriculture, beautiful villages and prosperous farmers will be widely discussed.
