Country steps up rural revitalization
    2018-03-08  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CHINA will see a promising and lucrative agricultural industry, a beautiful countryside and well-off farmers, Han Changfu, minister of agriculture, said yesterday.

Farming will become an attractive and demanding profession, while rural areas will become beautiful and prosperous, as the country steps up its efforts to revitalize its vast rural regions, Han said at a news conference on the sidelines of the ongoing annual session of the National People’s Congress.

Rural revitalization is a long-term process as there are vast differences among different villages in China, he said.

“For the rural revitalization strategy to succeed, China should continue to give priority to formulating scientific plans tailored for rural regions, including industrial layout, infrastructure development, land use and public service,” Han said.

The country should allocate more policy support, increase public investment and improve public services in rural areas, as well as accelerate integrated development to narrow the gap between urban and rural areas, he added.

The Ministry of Agriculture has sent more than 120 officials to 60 villages in 30 provinces and municipalities for one month to obtain firsthand materials on every aspect of the rural areas to better implement the strategy, according to Han.

Also the ministry told the conference China has not approved commercial production of genetically modified corn or any other GMO grain.

Currently only GMO cotton and papaya are allowed to grow on a commercial scale in China, Pan Xianzheng, ministry spokesman said. Agricultural authorities in China have been strictly adhering to laws and regulations over evaluations and management of genetically modified products to ensure their safety, he said.

China follows a path of GMO product development that allows the promotion of GMO food products only after the promotion of nonfood GMO products, Pan said. Staple grains would come last for commercial GMO production, he said.
