Leaders of the Shandong provincial Party committee and provincial government introduced the general situation of Shandong's economic and social development in the 70 years since the founding of the People's Republic of China at a press conference held by the State Council Information Office on July 16.

According to the leaders, there are two core requirements for Shandong to build a model for rural revitalization.

Firstly, the standard and level of the model should be high. In the process of developing agriculture, Shandong has created the Zhucheng model, Shouguang model and Weifang model, as well as Laixi experience at the grass-roots level. However, in the new era, Shandong should give new connotations and explore new paths.

Secondly, Shandong should build a model that will not only have unique features but can also be replicated and promoted across the country.

The model can be summarized as "13613" in the overall idea. The "1" refers to the vision leading to the integrated development of quality production process, strong production industry, good ecology, excellent environment, good life and beautiful homes.

The "3" refers to realizing agricultural and rural modernization according to three levels and three time nodes. By 2020, more than 30 percent of villages in Shandong should achieve agricultural and rural modernization. By 2030, the proportion should improve to more than 60 percent. By 2035, the proportion should reach 100 percent.

The "6" refers to the implementation of six major projects, including the promotion of comprehensive agricultural production capacity, and "13" refers to the 13 action plans.

In the policy system, it can be summarized as "1+1+5+N". The first "1" refers to the guidance of rural revitalization, and the second "1" refers to the strategic planning of rural revitalization.

The "5" refers to five work plans and five specialized teams launched around the five major revitalization areas of industry, personnel, culture, ecology and organization.

The "N" is a number of specific special actions such as the construction of beautiful villages and the renovation of toilets in rural areas.

In terms of rural living environment improvement, Shandong plans to build the "413" layout, namely, four featured areas of Jiaodong Peninsula, which includes Qingdao, Yantai and Weihai, central Shandong, southwest Shandong and northwest Shandong, ten featured belts and 300 model villages.
