  China News Service, Hefei, April 5th. Title: Visiting Xiaogang Village in Anhui: Intergenerational Inheritance of Reform and Innovation Genes

  China News Agency reporter Zhao Qiang

  The Jianghuai land in early spring is full of greenery.

Recently, the reporter came to Xiaogang Village, Fengyang County, Chuzhou City, Anhui Province to visit the vicissitudes of this village, which is known as the first village of China's rural reform.

More than 40 years ago, the 18 villagers here pressed the red handprints and signed the "Life and Death Contract" for the contract, which opened the prelude to China's rural reform.

Today, the genes of reform and innovation are passed on by the new generation of Xiaogang people, welcoming a new starting point for rural revitalization.

  Entering Xiaogang Village, on both sides of the straight Friendship Avenue, row upon row of dwellings, white walls and black tiles, sightseeing cars carrying tourists shuttle among the scenic spots such as "Farmhouse of the Year" and "Dabaogan Memorial Hall", farmhouses, specialty shops, and rural areas along the street E-commerce business is booming...

  "I'm in a hurry, I'm afraid of being hungry, how can we get a bowl of food, how can we stop begging for food, and only take the risk to allocate the land to each household." Recalling the past, the leader of the big package, Yan Jinchang In an interview with reporters, he said that in the past, there was no food, no clothes, no housing, and the family lived in broken thatched huts. After the implementation of the "big contract", Xiaogang Village has undergone earth-shaking changes. Now it is not worrying about food and clothing. No worries, every family lives in a small western-style building, and every household has to build a garage.

  This year, Yan Jinchang, who is almost in his old age, is physically strong and energetic.

He stopped farming many years ago, but started a farmhouse "interbank", earning nearly 200,000 yuan (RMB, the same below) in income every year.

He said: "The development of Xiaogang Village is inseparable from talents. Nothing can be done without talents. Now my three grandchildren have returned to Xiaogang Village after graduating from college, and my granddaughter Yanmei works as a narrator for Xiaogang Village Tourism Company. ."

  "My college major is broadcasting and hosting. I thought about being a teacher when I graduated in 2019, but I love my family, so I chose to return to Xiaogang Village." Yan Mei believes that Xiaogang Village has many opportunities for development, and she does this. She is very proud of her work.

Because every time she explained it to others, she was promoting her hometown. Her grandfather and grandfather were the leaders of the "big contract".

  As a new generation of Xiaogang Village, Yan Mei has felt the hardships of her ancestors since she was a child. She understands Xiaogang's spirit to dare to think and do.

In her work, she is always challenging herself. With the development of tourism in Xiaogang Village, more and more foreign tourists come here. In order to better promote Xiaogang Village, Yan Ni insists on learning foreign languages ​​every day.

She said that even in ordinary positions, the Xiaogang spirit must be passed down.

  There is also Zhou Dishuai, a new farmer who dares to think and do.

He once went to work and saw the 600 acres of land transferred by his father-in-law. He was too busy on weekdays, so he quit his job and returned to his hometown to farm.

"Unlike before, now farming is all mechanized. I have to be able to operate planters, harvesters, and drones." Zhou Dishuai said that mechanization has made farming more efficient and cost-saving.

Mechanization and intelligence are the inevitable trend of agricultural development, especially in the current rural revitalization.

In the future, he will also "turn to" organic agriculture.

  "Reform is the gene flowing in the blood of Xiaogang people, and innovation is the first driving force. In rural revitalization, we must seize innovation, by implementing the policies of the party and the state, and working creatively at the same time, using some small innovations as breakthroughs. To solve problems, solve problems, and promote development to benefit the people's livelihood." Li Jinzhu, the first secretary of the Xiaogang Village Party Committee, said that this year is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, and Xiaogang should work hard and be at the forefront in the journey of rural revitalization.

  It is understood that during the 13th Five-Year Plan period, Xiaogang Village vigorously implemented the "Three-Year Upgrading" action plan, and the rural revitalization strategy was accelerated.

In the past five years, the per capita disposable income of villagers has jumped from 14,700 yuan to 27,600 yuan, an increase of 87.8%; the village collective economic income has increased from 6.7 million yuan to 11.6 million yuan, an increase of 73.1%.
