China Continues Agricultural Reform
China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs held a press conference on Monday morning about the country’s rural reform pilot zones, reports CGTN.
What is a rural reform pilot zone?
Since 1987, China began to assign several counties as rural reform pilot zones. For a long period of time, China depended on agriculture to support the country’s entire modernization. Later on, the government realized it was necessary to eliminate the urban-rural gap, thus rural reform was launched in 13 pilot zones, from the country’s far northeastern province of Heilongjiang to the southern province of Guangdong.
