Farmers to benefit equally from China's development

[财经资讯]      来源:英语学习

Urbanization reform is expected to give rural residents the chance to benefit more fully from China's development, said Chen Xiwen, a senior rural planner for the central government.

The masterplan, approved by the third plenary session of the 18th Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee last week, portrays a new city-country dynamic, but making it work will be no easy task for the government, Chen told Xinhua.

Chen is the deputy director of the CPC Central Committee's leading group on rural matters and was one of those who helped draft the 20,000-character manifesto, which observers say is the boldest package of policies seen in decades.

Reform must accelerate in key areas, with decisive results to be obvious by 2020. Leading the agenda is economic reform, which includes financial and fiscal matters, social services, state-owned enterprises, streamlining government and urbanization.

Urbanization plans largely deal with rural property rights, the Hukou (household registration) system and land reform.

MORE PROPERTY RIGHTS

The plan promises to give the country's 650 million rural population more property rights. In Chen's view, rural property rights are still not fully protected and more needs to be done.

Some measures are already underway, including changes to the system of collective forest rights and registration of rural land collective ownership. These will lay a foundation for better protection of individual property rights, Chen said.

China needs a system which allows best use to be made of property rights, bringing most benefit to those who hold them. The plan has listed some major measures to be taken.

A rural property market will be established. People will be encouraged to transform their collective rights into a shareholding system. Shares will be fully fungible, may be used as collateral or guarantees and will be heritable. The current homestead system in rural areas will be improved, and a pilot program will enable the mortgaging and transfer of homesteads.

The government will allow the sale, lease and demutualization of rural construction land with a number of restrictions. These specific measures on a market for land under construction will further protect rural land rights. Rural land is no longer farmed collectively, but remains under collective ownership. Urban land, on the other hand, is owned by the state. A prosperous property market developed in cities since the 1990s.

Land of rural collectives and the state should have an equal footing in the market, with collective land enjoying the same rights and prices as state-owned land. Land expropriation should be scaled down and the procedure standardized. The rural compensation mechanism must be improved.

"Industrialization and urbanization will inevitably lead to occupation of some rural land. Holders of rights to that land must be fully respected and reasonably compensated," Chen said.

EQUAL PARTICIPATION IN MODERNIZATION

The developmental gap between rural and urban areas is the main obstacle to development. Despite galloping economic growth in the last 35 years, rural and migrant workers have been left behind.

According to the National Bureau of Statistics, the urban-rural income ratio -- a gauge of balanced social development -- was more than three to one in 2012. Last year, city dwellers' average incomes reached 24,565 yuan, those in the countryside stood at 7,917 yuan.

In 1978 when average city incomes stood at 343 yuan and rural at 134 yuan, city dwellers earned just over two and half times more than their country cousins. The income ratio has declined in recent years after peaking at 3.33:1 in 2007 and 2009, but the urban-rural wealth gap is still much too wide.

The masterplan envisages an urban-rural relationship with industry promoting agriculture, urban areas helping rural areas, and the countryside integrating with the cities.

"The current dualistic economic structure came into being during the planned economy and has become a major barrier to economic and social development in both urban and rural areas," Chen said.

Equal exchanges of production elements such as land, capital and labor between cities and countryside is absolutely essential. Public resources including education, medical care, cultural services and social security should be allocated in a balanced manner, he said.

The imbalance is much more than just income disparity. There is also a huge divergence in government services between cities and countryside.

Caught between the urban and rural residents are an army of 260 million migrant workers who live in cities but do not have access to the same public services as other urbanites who hold a city "Hukou", he said. "Hukou" is tied to place of residence and allows access to basic welfare and public services.

The plan promises to help migrants gradually become fully fledged urban residents, and make basic urban public services available to all.

"Reform of the Hukou system is very important to the urbanization drive," Chen said.

DEVELOPING AGRICULTURAL BUSINESSES

China's agriculture is faced with a dilemma between less farmland and more demand for farm produce. Solving it does not only mean improving overall agricultural productivity through investment, better facilities and more technology, but the key is raising farm workers' enthusiasm for production, Chen said.

A new system of agricultural management, with family operations at the base, will encourage family ranches, cooperatives and local companies to manage agricultural production and will stimulate development.

Industrial and commercial capital will be encouraged to invest in rural areas to develop a modern farming and plantation businesses.

Chen said it was also very important to develop a better system of services for agricultural businesses.
