With a large rural population, China is faced with various issues concerning its countryside, farmers, and agriculture. How can the country improve the economy and quality of life in its rural areas? How can it protect the rural environment and ensure food security? These are some of the major questions that the Chinese government has to address. In response to these questions, President Xi Jinping proposed seven approaches to rural revival at the 2017 Central Rural Work Conference. In the following year, he made a call for governments at all levels to revitalize the rural industries, talent, culture, ecology, and grassroots Party organizations. These approaches and the call constitute the core of China’s rural revival strategy. In this book, the author offers a rich analysis of the background, implications, and implementation of this strategy for the global audience.
