International experience and China’s practices of rural revitalization: an overview on the symposium of Chinese Society of Foreign Agricultural Economy
【Abstract】Implementing the strategy of rural revitalization is an important decision-making plan made by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China based on a deep judgment of the major problems including insufficient development in rural areas and unbalanced development between urban and rural areas. It also is a general grasp of the work related to agriculture, rural areas and farmers in the new era. Based on academic exchanges at the annual symposium of Chinese Society of Foreign Agricultural Economy in 2018, this article systematically identified the basic connotation and policy direction of rural revitalization strategy, and summarized the international experience and China’s practices of rural revitalization. Experts have exchanged and confronted ideas on the following topics. First of all, how do we prevent the countryside decline and scientifically grasp the keynotes of implementing rural revitalization strategy? Secondly, how do we improve food safety and international competitiveness of agricultural products through green production and ecological governance? Thirdly, how do we optimize agricultural industrial organization to improve agricultural production efficiency? Fourthly, how do we achieve an inclusive development of primary, secondary and tertiary industries to improve farmers’ income? Furthermore, scholars have also discussed new ideas and directions for the development of agriculture and rural areas and the implementation of rural revitalization strategy in China’s new era.
