President Xi Jinping has emphasised the nation’s rural vitalisation strategy as the leading agenda for government work relating to agriculture and rural areas, state media outlet Xinhua reports, as he spoke with representatives from China’s Shandong province at the National People’s Congress in Beijing.
In his address, Xi urged local governments to introduce policies that increase incomes of rural residents, reducing poverty in these areas. Included in the list of goals were the ensuring of national food security and the establishment of a modern rural industry system.
The Chinese president also stressed the importance to the strategy of ecological vitalisation and green development in rural areas, referencing the government’s three-year plan and ‘toilet revolution’, which will modernise nationwide sanitation.
