President Hu Addresses "Three Rural Issues"
2006-1-27 10:43:24
Chinese government is to take additional measures to support agriculture and rural development.

At a recent meeting of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, Chinese President, and also General Secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, Hu Jintao, addressed the "Three Rural Issues", namely agriculture, rural areas and farmers.

Hu Jintao pointed out rural development is the most arduous task facing China in building a well-off society for all.

He has urged government departments to adopt flexible policies, giving farmers real benefits and reducing their financial burdens.

China abolished agricultural tax from January 1, 2006, reducing the financial burden for China's 800 million farmers by an average of 120 yuan, or nearly 15 US dollars each, per year.

Earlier, China's Finance Minister Jin Renqing said that the central government plans to allocate 100 billion yuan, or about 12 billion US dollars, each year, commencing this year, to support the rural tax reform.
