Besides, the Forum will unveil the WeChat official account, Xiangxuetang (lit. the school of rural areas), co-developed by Chongqing Daily and SWU Institute of Rural Reconstruction of China. It delivers such services as rural revitalization online training, online course consultation, and offline practice, with aims to become a platform for Chongqing to communicate and cooperate with China’s experts and scholars, entrepreneurs, and outstanding workers, pool high-caliber talent, and serve rural revitalization.
Next, national rural revitalization pilot towns/townships will welcome relevant courses, creating a wider space for integrating theoretical study and practical learning around the strategy.
Chongqing Daily News Group established the Rural Revitalization Research Institute in April 2021. Since then, the institute has been working with the SWU Institute of Rural Reconstruction of China, New Native Land Group, and Devotion to Hometown Cultural Development Center to make plans for diverse rural revitalization training, pool talent resources from governments, industries, universities, and media, and explore role models and new development paths and patterns in this field. By then, the institute can provide intellectual support for primary-level officials and entrepreneurs, allowing them to boost agricultural upgrades, improve rural areas, and increase farmers’ incomes. Meanwhile, it can also help the modernization of agriculture and rural areas at a faster pace.
