The China (Quzhou) Village Vision Conference was held on May 18 in Quzhou city in East China's Zhejiang province -- aiming to attract talent, promote the advancement of agricultural science and technology and regional economic integration, as well as to facilitate future rural development.
During the two-day event, a series of seminars and talks on rural revitalization strategy was held involving four provinces – Zhejiang, Anhui, Fujian and Jiangxi.
For the first time, the China Association of Agricultural Science Societies also announced the winners of its Science and Technology Awards for the Young. A total of 51 young scientists, who were also conferred with the title "honorary villagers" of Quzhou City's Village Vision, received honors.
In 2017, China proposed a strategy of rural revitalization. The aim was to build rural areas with thriving businesses, an eco-friendly environment, social etiquette and civility, effective governance and a prosperous rural population -- making sure that positive results from poverty elimination programs are consolidated and become an integral part of rural revitalization.
Quzhou reportedly took the lead in Zhejiang to launch a village vision pilot scheme and it has followed the precept of people-centered rural development since August, 2019.
