Liang Lina, born in 1985, has been a deputy of the Guangxi Delegation to the National People's Congress (NPC) for two consecutive years. After graduating from Guangxi Normal University with a master's degree, Liang chose to be a village official in her hometown. With her prudent and conscientious working attitude, Liang proves, via her actions, that young people can also bear heavy social responsibilities.
Focusing on the construction of a Beautiful Countryside
Liang Lina is a secretary of the Party general branch of Luhe Village in Wushi Town of Luchuan County, in southwest China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. During 2013 "two-sessions," Liang called for the Chinese government to strengthen rural environment governance and the sanitation business.
As a grass-roots village cadre, Liang pays special attention to villagers' quality of life. As proposed during the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), in order to construct ‘a beautiful China,' citizens and government bodies need to first focus on ‘beautiful villages'. This means that it is vital to ensure a clean and tidy village to best interpret the ‘beautiful China' ideal. According to the investigation, Liang says, the amount of domestic garbage in rural areas rose sharply over the preceding years, including plastic bags, plastic film, fast-food boxes, used batteries, broken glass, and much more. Some of these refuse items are non-biodegradable waste, while others are simply not recycled by people. The ability to dispose of domestic garbage is weak in rural areas, and the majority of garbage is buried at random land-fill sites, which is liable to cause the secondary pollution. For this reason, Liang calls for the Chinese government to strengthen rural environment governance and construct rural household garbage transfer stations, sewage treatment plants, new energy bio-gas projects and other environmental protection facilities in rural areas, equipped with environmental cleaners in order to set up a sustainable mechanism for a cleaner countryside. Liang also says, "Although we have already made great strides in building a ‘beautiful village', I will keep researching landfill and cremation systems, so as to find a better way to solve the problem of excess waste."
Focus Point in 2014
E-Commercial Leads to A Rich Road
When it comes to agrarian matters, Liang suggests that villagers plant drought-tolerant peanut crops, which will bring the village a successful yearly harvest. Through this, Liang has helped villagers achieve a net income of 2,500 yuan (U.S. $407.25) per mu (there are around 6 mu to an acre) of dry land, which has led to her being greatly admired by her fellow villagers.
Liang also advised her villagers to plant chrysoidine (used in dyes) and dendrobium candidum (used in traditional Chinese medicine) so as to bring in business opportunities and expand income channels, in virtue of the Yulin Medicine Expo. In addition, Liang also plans to establish two standardized hoggeries this year.
Liang says she has been concerned about rural electronic-commercial (e-commercial) development for some time. Since Liang's villagers have got agricultural products, the next step is to find ways to broaden the market. So, Liang's proposal this year at the NPC is to focus on the development of the e-commercial situation in rural areas. Liang adds that college graduate village officials have greater potential t0 help villagers develop their e-commercial status. In the meantime, village officials should apply their full effort towards making crops and products more conducive to being sold through the platform of e-commercial.
