With the encouragement of Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), on red tourism development, many college graduates have chosen to return and contribute to the local development in their hometown in east China's Zhejiang Province, in recent years.
Huang Xujie was born in the 90s in Hengkantou Village of Liangnong Township, which was the center of the CPC-led base area during China's War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression in east Zhejiang.
After obtaining a master's degree in business administration in Germany, Huang abandoned a promising opportunity to work abroad and chose to contribute to her hometown instead. Back in Liangnong, she successfully founded the Liangnong Dining Hall which now has three branches.
This March, all Party members of Hengkantou received a reply from General Secretary Xi, who has affirmed the achievements of the Party branches in Hengkantou in developing red tourism, utilizing green resources, and expanding characteristic agriculture. Xi also encouraged them to inherit the revolutionary spirit, make persistent efforts, and work hard to build a rich, civilized and beautiful countryside.
After that, more tourists visited the village. Thus, Huang opened another restaurant to better promote economic development and spread revolutionary history.
Liangnong has seen a group of youth like Huang who returned from other places. They used local advantages to develop traditional agriculture and leisure tourism and created a series of agricultural projects to attract more youth makers to return home. As of now, more than 20 people have returned and started their own businesses in their hometown.
These entrepreneurial projects of young entrepreneurs have revitalized the resources of Hengkantou and upgraded local's living standards. According to the local villagers, the annual per capita income of young people in the village is expected to reach more than 90,000 yuan this year.
