On the afternoon of March 30, 2020, General Secretary Xi Jinping once again visited Yu Village in Anji County, Zhejiang Province after 15 years. Anji produces bamboo and is the "Hometown of Chinese Bamboo" in China.
On April 9, 2003, Comrade Xi Jinping visited Anji for investigation when he was the secretary of the Zhejiang Provincial Party Committee. He said that when he first knew Anji's name was when he was in charge of rural work in Fujian, he knew that Anji's bamboo industry had developed relatively well. When he first arrived in Anji, he said, “Only by relying on abundant bamboo resources and a good ecological environment, turning natural resources into economic resources, turning environmental advantages into economic advantages, and taking the road of economic ecology, can Anji’s economic development have a way out. "
In the 1980s and 1990s, the people of Yucun dig a mine and build a cement factory, and their lives became rich. However, the good times did not last long, causing extensive damage to the mountain and serious environmental pollution. Between 2003 and 2005, the village closed its mines and cement plants, and began to close the mountains to cultivate forests and protect the environment.
On August 15, 2005, Xi Jinping, then secretary of the Zhejiang Provincial Party Committee, visited Yucun and fully affirmed the practice of shutting down mines and cement plants in the village, and for the first time put forward the development concept of "green water and green mountains are golden mountains and silver mountains". , Pointed out the green development path for Yucun.
Transition from "stone economy" to "ecological economy", Yucun relies on the resource advantage of "bamboo sea" to develop ecological leisure tourism, open farmhouses, homestays, and run rafting. After more than ten years of unremitting efforts, Yucun has transformed from a polluted village into a national 4A-level scenic spot. In 2019, the village realized a total rural economic income of 279.6 million yuan, a per capita income of farmers 49,598 yuan, and a village collective economic income of 5.21 million yuan. It is a well-known comprehensive well-off construction demonstration village.
After 15 years, Xi Jinping revisited Anjiyu Village. Along the roads in the village, he saw green hills and green hills, gurgling water, clean roads, and families living in beautiful buildings. Xi Jinping was very happy. The villagers gathered around the road, greeted the general secretary one after another, and welcomed the general secretary to Yu Village again. Xi Jinping said that time flies, and the situation back then is vivid. This time it is completely different. The construction of beautiful villages has become a reality in Yucun. Yucun’s current achievements prove that the path of green development is correct, and that if you choose the right path, you must stick to it.
Anji is the birthplace of the concept of "two mountains". Over the past ten years, Anji County has conscientiously implemented the concept of "green water and green mountains are golden mountains and silver mountains" and the spirit of important instructions of the general secretary. With strides forward, ecological advantages have been increasingly transformed into tangible economic benefits. In the bamboo industry alone, Anji has created 20% of the country’s bamboo output value with 1.8% of the country’s bamboo output. Last year it reached 21.7 billion yuan. It has made important contributions to helping farmers get rid of poverty and becoming prosperous, and the overall promotion of ecological civilization construction and rural governance. More than ten years later, General Secretary Xi Jinping visited Anji again to conduct research. The focus is still on the harmony between man and nature, between man and man, and the harmony between man and economic development. It is similar to the survey 15 years ago, but also has special features. The special meaning of the period.
Why revisit the birthplace of the "two mountains" theory more than ten years later? Two years ago, General Secretary Xi Jinping’s speech at the National Ecological and Environmental Protection Conference may provide the answer: To build a moderately prosperous society in all respects by 2020 is a solemn promise made by our party to the people. It is not possible to declare the completion of a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way while the quality of the ecological environment is still poor, so that the people will not recognize it and cannot withstand the test of history. No matter how difficult it is, don't hesitate or shrink.
This year is the year of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects. These words, together with Xi Jinping’s firm vow to win a decisive victory over poverty, have become the solemn declaration of the Chinese Communists in the special year of 2020. As a new force in the construction of ecological civilization, China's bamboo and rattan industry will continue to deeply implement the concept of "two mountains", give full play to the value function of its own green industry and ecological industry, and make positive contributions to winning the fight against poverty and building an ecologically civilized society.
