China's Rural Youths Return Home as Aspiring Agricultural Professionals

 July 30, 2021

 

TAIYUAN, July 29 (Xinhua) — Liu Shuang was born in Xiyang County, north China's Shanxi Province. Her hometown is famous for its agricultural development in China. Liu Shuang achieved her bachelor's and master's degrees from Wageningen University in the Netherlands and a Ph.D. degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. After graduation, she took her father's advice and returned to her hometown.

 

In Xiyang, Liu found that locals made a lot of efforts on planting Yuluxiang pears, which boasted both good taste and high economic value. She decided to give full play to her professional training and built an e-commerce platform for the planters and expand the market.

 

As China announced victory over poverty earlier this year, rural areas have marched on a new journey toward vitalization. Fruit and vegetable cultivation has played an important role in making Chinese farmers rich. More and more young Chinese return to hometowns like Liu Shuang to start their own planting businesses. With professional skills and novel ideas of management, they are bringing new vitality to China's rural economic development.
