China currently operates 62 national modern agricultural industrial parks

On July 19, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs in China has announced that China has approved 62 national modern agricultural industrial parks in order to improve the rural industry. 20 agricultural industrial parks in the first round are recognized. According to the head of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, the central government in China gives RMB 5 billion in funding to support the construction of national modern agricultural industrial parks.


Apart from a total of 62 national modern agricultural industrial parks, more than one thousand modern agricultural industrial parks and a number of agricultural industrial parks in cities and counties were also built in China. Currently, these 62 national modern agricultural industrial parks produce products for 95 leading industries, attracting nearly 100 national key enterprises and about 500 provincial key enterprises to join and corporate with them. 142 thousand workers are employed in these national modern agricultural industrial parks, and the income of the farmers in these industrial parks reach RMB 22,000, which is 34% higher than the income level of the farmers in rural areas.


According to Changfu Han, the minister of MOA, problems of modern agricultural industrial parks still exist. For example, leading industries in most modern agricultural industrial parks are not outstanding; the industrial parks oriented toward grain, cotton, oil as well as sugar are not common; the understanding of industry convergence is limited. As a result, in the future, these industrial parks should be planed and developed scientifically, in order to improve the system of agricultural industrial parks in China.
