Senior legislator calls for rigorous enforcement of law to promote rural vitalization Updated: 2022-07-21


A team led by Ji Bingxuan, vice-chairman of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, inspected the enforcement of the law on rural vitalization promotion in East China's Jiangsu province from July 11 to 15. The team also conducted research on the implementation of the seed law during the visit.

In the cities of Huai'an, Suqian, Yangzhou and Nanjing, the team made field inspections at farms for specialty crops, modern agriculture industrial parks, new-type of rural neighborhoods and house renovation projects in the countryside. The team also held a symposium to hear reports on Jiangsu's enforcement of the law.

Ji acknowledged the province's solid measures and progress in enforcing the law, which makes important contributions to the country's overall development in rural vitalization.

He urged Jiangsu to protect the Jianghuai Plain, a quality grain-production base of the country, and actively explore new ways to integrate development of urban and rural areas.

Consistent efforts are needed to improve the environment for agricultural production, promote water conservancy and agricultural mechanization as well as science and technology innovation. It is also significant to enhance rural governance and cultural endeavors, according to Ji.

When meeting with the inspection team, Wu Zhenglong, secretary of the Jiangsu Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), introduced the province's rural vitalization endeavors and also pledged to ensure agricultural production and supply of major agricultural products. Xu Kunlin, the province's governor, said Jiangsu will conscientiously enforce the law and accelerate the modernization of agriculture and rural areas.
