Rejuvenating rural villages, agriculture, and the livelihoods of rural workers should continue to be a major task for the Chinese government, according to the first document issued jointly by China’s State Council and the Communist Party Central Committee this year, as well as a subsequent opinion document published in February.

In the process of implementing the central government’s plans for rural reform, China should not only strengthen investment in infrastructure, material, cultural and economic structures, but should also ensure that reforms will be backed by law and institutions through the strengthening of the legal system, especially in relation to land rights.
