To Our Dear Countryside - Dialogues and Dreams

你农我农 -- 我们所不知道的农村 : 危机与转机 

Pressing Current Affairs:

Mainland China: At the end of 2013, The Third Plenary Session announced that use right of Rural Profit-Oriented Land can be transferred.” This implies that rural land market is freed to a certain extent. Many developers are already eyeing this opportunity. Where does the future of China’s vast countryside lie? Will it go through the crude process of urbanisation like many existing suburban areas?

Taiwan: Powered with WTO agreement, the Rural Rejuvenation Act, and Land Expropriation Act, Taiwanese government and enterprises have been championing economic development strongly. However, as the result of such development, the country is losing a significant amount of agriculture land, which in turn affects the food supply. What is your position given the current situation?
