Original title: half of Henan's farmers go out to work in rural areas, "hollow" issue concerns.

Zhengzhou, September 11 (Reporter Dong Fei) the latest publication of the "Agricultural and Rural Development Report of Henan" (2018) pointed out that the "hollow" problem is an old problem facing rural development, but also the implementation of Rural Revitalization strategy must be solved the first difficult problem.

The report is a blue book compiled by the Henan Academy of social sciences. The book deeply analyzes the situation and characteristics of agricultural and rural development in Henan Province in 2017, looks forward to the year 2018, and discusses the main ideas and Countermeasures of Promoting Rural Revitalization Strategy in Henan Province.

In recent years, rural development in Henan Province has achieved remarkable results, the transformation of agriculture is strong, the rural environment continues to improve, and farmers'sense of acquisition and well-being has increased significantly.

The report also points out that there are still many urgent problems to be solved in the process of development. The problem of "hollow" in rural areas of Henan is particularly serious.

On the one hand is the "hollowing out" of human beings. According to statistics, the rural household registration population of Henan is 51.71 million, which is the only province with a rural population exceeding 50 million. However, the number of migrant workers who go out to work is as high as 28 million 760 thousand, which is more than 1/2 of the rural household population.

According to the report, most of these migrant workers are young adults, while those left behind in the countryside are women, children and the elderly. Some families go out to make a living and return to the village only on holidays.

On the other hand, the village is "hollowing out". Since the reform and opening up, the scale of residential land in many villages has expanded rapidly. Many peasants have built new houses in the more convenient arable land near the highway outside the village, and the original houses and houses have been abandoned.

The report pointed out that this led to a multi-household, village layout confusion, a large number of the original village homestead idle, land resources are seriously wasted.

According to the analysis of the report, in the current context of rapid urbanization, Promoting Rural Revitalization in particular requires efforts to cultivate, utilize and introduce talent. With the continuous flow of talents to cities, rural talents and labor force are in short supply.

According to the analysis of the report, in the current context of rapid urbanization, Promoting Rural Revitalization in particular requires efforts to cultivate, utilize and introduce talent. With the continuous flow of talents to cities, rural talents and labor force are in short supply.

Chen Donghui, a researcher at Henan Academy of Social Sciences, thinks that the one-way flow of talents from rural areas to cities is not conducive to rural revitalization. We must break the dual barriers between urban and rural areas, reform the existing household registration system, so that those who are willing to go to the countryside entrepreneurs can enter the countryside steadily and for a long time, so that they can see hope and good expectations in the vast world, and then voluntarily contribute to the revitalization of the countryside.
