BUILDING A MODERATELY PROSPEROUS SOCIETY IN ALL RESPECTS – Revitalizing the Countryside*
Rural Development Institute, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Beijing, China
Abstract: The problem of China’s uneven and insufficient development is the most striking in the countryside. Countryside rejuvenation is of historical significance to building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and turning China into a modernized socialist country. The reform of rural land system is vital to integrating urban and rural development. We must allow farmers to gain their due share of value-added revenues from land, and share in the dividends of urbanization. Based on household operations, we should enhance the basic rural operation system, foster new agricultural operators, and develop modern agriculture as the foundation for revitalizing countryside industries. We must deepen agricultural supply-side structural reforms to ensure sufficient supply and security of main agricultural products. We must reform the rural collective ownership system to implement property rights to farmers and protect their interests in the context of urban and rural integration. We must promote green development and revitalize countryside ecological environment. We must enhance rural governance to revitalize rural organizations.
Keywords: countryside revitalization, a moderately prosperous society in an all respects, revitalizing rural industries, talents, organizations, ecological environment
