More Creative Efforts Needed in Pushing Rural Reforms

Vice President Xi Jinping has urged working creatively and devoting more efforts to deepen reform in rural areas so as to bring more tangible benefits to farmers.

In his three day research inspection to the eastern Jiangxi Province, which came after the close of the Third Plenary Session of the 17th CPC Central Committee, Xi called on all Party members to learn and implement the communique adopted at the major meeting, which ended on Sunday.

He said more efforts should be made to improve people's livelihood and new financial resources should be tilted towards helping the poor, developing rural areas and improving public utilities, so the broad masses could share in the fruits of the reform.

The Third Plenary Session of the 17th CPC Central Committee, which focused on issues concerning rural reform and development, said in the communique it would strive to double the per-capita disposable income of rural residents by 2020 from the current level.

The communique outlined the plan for advancing rural reform and development in the next few years, giving priority to reform and innovation, developing modern agriculture, boosting the capacity of agricultural production, and developing public utilities in rural regions.

This plenum was significant because it was the Third Plenary Session of the 11th CPC Central Committee 30 years ago that pushed the country on to the road of its historic reform and opening-up drive.
