The report believes that my country's "three rural" work has entered a new stage of development.
The strategic objectives of the "three rural" work have undergone a historic shift.
This year is the beginning of my country’s comprehensive construction of a modern socialist country and marching towards the second century’s goal. The focus of my country’s “agriculture, rural areas and farmers” work has shifted from concentrated resources to support historical poverty alleviation to comprehensive promotion of rural revitalization.
To build a modern socialist country in an all-round way and realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, the focus and difficulty lies in the "three rural" work, and the foundation and key lies in rural revitalization.
The report recommends that towns and villages should be used as the starting point to promote rural revitalization.
Towns and villages are an important part of the countryside. They are in the hub position connecting urban and rural areas and linking up and down. They are important bridges for urban-rural integration development, the main carrier for solving the "three rural" issues, and the effective means of implementing the rural revitalization strategy. It is necessary to vigorously promote the township Quality development, and continuously improve the comprehensive competitiveness of towns and villages, making them an important platform for improving the level of rural public services, an important carrier to undertake urban functions and rural migration, and an important engine for accelerating rural economic development, so as to promote rural revitalization with "township revitalization" ".
