How can the countryside be revitalized? The plan gives a clear "portrait" : by 2020, the policy system, institutional system, standard system and assessment system will be basically established to support rural revitalization, and initial achievements will be made in the integrated development of primary, secondary and tertiary industries in rural areas. What’s more, balanced development of urban and rural areas will further strengthened, the construction of "beautiful Mianyang -- livable countryside" will be carried out in an all-round way, and initial progress will be made in improving the living environment. All poverty-stricken counties will be lifted off their caps, all poverty-stricken villages will be removed, and all poverty-stricken people will be lifted out of poverty, so as to build a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way in step with the whole province.
Rural revitalization and industrial revitalization are the material basis. According to the plan, we need to promote integrated upgrading of primary, secondary and tertiary industries, deepen supply-side structural reform in agriculture, and accelerate the establishment of the modern agricultural industrial system, production system and operation system. Focusing on the goal of pursuing large scale, high quality and famous brands, we will promote the in-depth integration of rural industries. Through the construction of modern agricultural industrial parks, we will promote the high-quality development of agriculture and rural areas, and boost the comprehensive revitalization of rural industries.
A sound ecological environment is the biggest wealth and advantage of rural areas. The plan clearly stipulates that we should implement the nationwide "beautiful Mianyang --- livable countryside" construction action, and accelerate the transformation of production and lifestyle. What’s more, we should make prograss in improving rural living environment, carry out large-scale Greening Mianzhou Action, and strengthen the protection and restoration of rural ecological environment.
Rural revitalization should be achieved from outsude to inside.

What’s more, we will carry forward the fine traditional rural culture, promote the revitalization of rural culture, and build civilized villages with clean and upright environment. By 2020, the coverage of "fifteen-mile cultural circle" in rural areas will be basically achieved.
The prospeity of rural areas lies on the branch.The plan clearly stipulates that we should focus on the overall upgrading action of rural leader team, and strengthen the core position of rural community-level party organizations. Moreover, we will accelerate the formation of a new pattern of community-level governance in which autonomy, the rule of law, and the rule of virtue are integrated, law enforcement, management, and service are integrated, and civil, physical, and technical defense are combined.
Rural revitalization should enhance people's sense of gain.The plan clearly calls for the sharing action of urban and rural people's livelihood to ensure a better life for farmers. We should focus on key areas, strengthen areas of weakness and improve the quality of people's lives, thus ensuring that rural residents have a greater sense of fulfillment, happiness, and security.
The plan regards 'targeted poverty alleviation with high quality’ as one of its key tasks and lists a separate chapter for deployment. It is clearly put forward that we should implement the decisions and plans on of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, provincial Party committees, provincial governments,municipal Party committees and municipal governments on poverty alleviation, and ensure that we can build a moderately prosperous society in all respects in step with the whole province.
Where dose the motivation of rural revitalization come from?

Moreover, we will deepen the reform of agriculture and rural areas, accelerate the building of a new institutional framework featuring integrated urban and rural development and rational two-way flow of factors, and promote integrated urban and rural development.
With a good "blueprint", we should focus on organization and implementation.The plan calls for strengthening the party's leadership in implementing the rural revitalization strategy. We will continue to implement the rural work mechanism by which city, county (city, district), township and village focus on rural revitalization. Local governments at all levels should be clear about the hard tasks which must be accomplished for pursuing a moderately prosperous society in all respects, refine policies and measures, strengthen coordination and form synergy. Moreover, we will make agriculture a promising industry, farmers an attractive profession, and rural areas a beautiful home for people to live and work in peace and contentment.
