President Xi Jinping has urged China's supply and marketing cooperatives to stay true to their fundamental purpose of serving agriculture, rural areas and farmers, continue deepening comprehensive reforms, and make contributions to the advancement of rural vitalization. Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, made the remarks in an instruction on the sector's work.
Supply and marketing cooperatives across the country have deepened reforms and contributed a lot to promoting the development toward modern agriculture, increasing rural income and boosting integrated urban-rural development.
The cooperatives should improve systems and mechanisms, expand service areas, and accelerate efforts to become a comprehensive platform for serving rural production and livelihood as well as a bridge for the Party and the government to connect with farmers, Xi said.
