Green development promotes rural vitalization across China
Green development, including eco-friendly farming and improved ecological environment, has been promoting rural vitalization and improving the well-being of the people in rural areas across China.
Located in southwest China's Sichuan Province, Fucheng Village in Mianyang City has formed its own green agriculture by inter-cropping plants like corn and bitter gourd, thereby boosting the income of villagers.
Separately, the residents of Maozhushan Village in Guilin City, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, have been making a profit by growing grapes using techniques and management methods that ensure high-quality produce and consequently good sales.
"With the income from selling grapes, every household has its own house. Besides, the roads have been repaired now, and the environment of the entire village is getting better, which is clean and beautiful," said Wang Deli, a villager of Maozhushan.
In northwest China's Gansu Province, Suwan Village has turned itself into a scenic spot for rural tourism. The old brickyards and wasteland have been replaced by recreational facilities, such as bridges, pavilions and waterwheels.
Rural tourism is also developing in Xianrendong Village, southwest China's Yunnan Province. The village has been transformed and upgraded in accordance with its geological and ecological features.
"Our village now has access to airport, expressway and high-speed train. Therefore, we are getting more and more tourists. In 2019, the per capita income topped 50,000 yuan (about $7,719). This is all because of our protection of the environment," said Fan Chengyuan, an official of Xianrendong Village.
