On April 9, 2018, Minister Han Changfu attended an agricultural session themed “The Marginalized Rural Asia” during the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) Annual Conference 2018. As the minister pointed out, the important decision to implement the rural vitalization strategy made at the 19th CPC National Congress is a major strategy in the new era, which reflects the principle of the CPC’s governance and General Secretary Xi Jinping’s thought on agriculture, rural areas, and rural residents. The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs will fully implement decisions and arrangements made by the CPC Central Committee, enhance research, and make holistic planning, to get the rural vitalization strategy off to a good start.

 

"General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized that agriculture, rural residents, and rural areas shall not be neglected at any time," Minister Han said. He also pointed out that implementing the rural vitalization strategy is an attempt to put into practice General Secretary Xi Jinping’s thought on agriculture, rural areas, and rural residents. As agricultural and rural development entered a new era, critical challenges remain. Imbalance in development between urban and rural areas and inadequate development of rural areas are manifestations of the  principle contradictions facing Chinese society in the new era. In years to come, even if China’s urbanization rate reaches 70%, there will be 400 to 500 million people living in rural areas. Our economic and social development is not aimed at making rural areas bleaker in promoting urban modernization. To reverse the situation of unbalanced development, we need to take extraordinary measures, stand firm in prioritizing the development of agriculture and rural areas, speed up efforts to strengthen points of weakness in agricultural and rural development, and guard against rural stagnation in the process of urbanization .

 

According to Minister Han, “the building of a moderately prosperous society depends on our rural residents, and national prosperity is determined by the development of rural areas.” He also pointed out that implementing the rural vitalization strategy is an indispensable part of the overall national strategy and embodies our efforts to develop rural areas to realize the goal of  building China into a modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, harmonious, and beautiful.
