On April 3, Chinese Vice Premier Hu Chunhua, also member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, attended the inauguration ceremony of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs and presided over a symposium. During the symposium, he emphasized that the ministry  should study and implement Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era and the instructions of the 19th National Congress of the CPC, the second and third plenary sessions of the 19th CPC Central Committee and the “Two Sessions”. According to decisions and arrangements made by the CPC Central Committee and the State Council, the ministry should take the implementation of the rural revitalization strategy as a major task, push forward institutional reform in a solid and orderly manner, carry out agricultural and rural work of the new era in an all-round way, and strive to break new ground for the development of agriculture, rural areas, and rural residents.

 

The Vice Premier stressed that General Secretary Xi Jinping’s thought on agriculture, rural areas, and rural residents is a scientific theoretical system proven correct in practice, as well as a significant part of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era. It is also a powerful theoretical tool and essential rule for implementing the rural revitalization strategy and carrying out work on agriculture, rural areas, and rural residents in the new era. The ministry  should unswervingly implement it and fully understand its main ideas and rich implications. According to requirements of each important instruction, the ministry should lay down work, improve thoughts and goals, clarify measures and tasks, and ensure their implementation so that new progress will be made in promoting agricultural and rural work.

 

As Hu pointed out, under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core, progress has been achieved in agriculture and rural areas since the 18th National Congress of the CPC. We have realized a steady growth in grain output and overall agricultural production capacity, a rapid increase of rural residents’ income, continuing optimization of agricultural structure, and continuous deepening of agricultural reform, in which departments of agriculture and rural affairs have played an active role. In order to advance the overall cause of the CPC and our country, the CPC Central Committee has decided to establish the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs. It’s aim is to enhance the CPC’s centralized and unified leadership over agriculture, rural areas, and rural residents, prioritize the development of agriculture and rural areas, implement the rural revitalization strategy in a coordinated way, promote all-round upgrading of agriculture, progress in rural areas, and development of rural residents, and accelerate the modernization of agriculture and rural areas. The ministry should take the responsibility of coordinating the research and implementation of strategies, plans and policies on agriculture, rural areas, and rural residents, enhance functions and institutions of rural affairs, promote the revitalization of rural industries, talents, culture, ecological environment and organizations, and promote rural revitalization in a healthy and orderly manner. Meanwhile, the ministry should strengthen grain productivity, push forward supply-side structural reform of agriculture, and implement the three-year action plan for improving rural living environment so as to ensure a good beginning in  implementing the rural revitalization strategy.
