BEIJING, May 25 (Xinhua) -- Chinese central and local authorities have recently further increased their policy support to accelerate the rural construction, with the focus on improving the living environment and promoting construction of digital villages, the Xinhua-run Economic Information Daily reported on Tuesday.

According to a recent conference held jointly by the national administration for rural vitalization and the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, efforts will be made to focus on areas such as rural construction and the improvement of living environment in rural areas, and ensure housing safety of those lift out of poverty. 

In addition to the support from the central authorities, the local governments have also stepped up efforts to promote rural construction. 

For example, central China's Henan Province launched a campaign for rural construction and plans to cultivate 1,000 new rural construction demonstration villages. A batch of projects involving rural infrastructure construction and rural public services will be rolled out. 

Northeast China's Heilongjiang Province has issued policies to further promote the program of piloting the digital villages. 

Moreover, provinces of Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Hunan, and Hubei have also issued policies to improve the appearance of the countryside, enhance the level of infrastructure, and achieve equalization of basic public services. 

In terms of the infrastructure construction in rural areas, on the one hand, efforts should be made to continuously improve the traditional infrastructure conditions such as water supply, electricity, and houses; and on the other hand, the new infrastructure shall be extended to the rural areas, according to Li Guoxiang, a researcher at Rural Development Institute of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. 

Insiders believe that with the roll-out of more support policies, investments will be channeled to the rural areas, generating more opportunities. (Edited by Hu Pingchao with Xinhua Silk Road, hupingchao@xinhua.org)
