Establish Holistic Beautiful Countryside
Abstract: 
For decades, rural areas, where incomes and living standards are significantly lower, have been left behind in China’s urbanization drive. Millions of farmers have gone to the cities in search of work in factories, leaving behind their homes, land, and children. President Xi has made rural revitalization a top priority for the party and vowed to address the gap between agriculture and industries, and between urban and rural areas, and improve the system to advance rural development. In this seminar, visiting scholar Shuangnan Liao will discuss how this policy has reflected in the field of urban planning, through a rural planning project for Gui'an New area.
