China stresses ‘unhurried’ rural vitalization

BEIJING — China should pursue rural vitalization in an unhurried manner, with an emphasis on quality instead of speed, according to a statement released Friday after the central rural work conference.

Implementing the rural vitalization strategy is a historic task for the long term that needs scientific planning, a focus on quality, an unhurried tempo and no obsession with speed, the statement said.

The country should conduct overall planning to guide rural vitalization and design a number of important projects, plans and actions, it added.
