Chinese Premier ^^ pledged on Sunday that more of China's economic growth and investment must go to farmers.

The Chinese government will spend 339.7 billion yuan (US$42 billion) in agriculture, rural areas and farmers this year, an increase of 14.18 percent over last year, the Premier said in his annual government work report at the opening of the national legislature, the National People's Congress.

"We need to implement a policy of getting industry to support agriculture and cities to support the countryside, strengthen support for agriculture, rural areas and farmers, and continue making reforms in rural systems and innovations in rural institutions to bring about a rapid and significant change in the overall appearance of the countryside," Wen said.

A large section of his report addressed the government's plans to build a "new socialist countryside" for the country's 750 million farmers. The programme is a "major historic task" to divert government investment, education and health care, and bank loans to the countryside.

True.
Most of them are officials and have the power to do something to help the poor, if they want to do it.
Let's hope they will.

Who is this guy "^^"? Is the name of the premier a state secret or something in China?

I hope that he delivers. But where is this money going to come from? Certainly not the defence budget, ho-ho. So is he going to increase taxes? Or just hope that he can increase the efficiency of tax collection?

In my opinion, the National People's Congress makes a lot of reforms every year though it cannot give
everyone of our country a satisfied answer. It is nearly impossible in other countries, I think.

I really agree with you!!

I don't know, probably it is.
The money -- state coffer and taxpayers' money. wouldn't it be good for the money -- from the people and used for the people?

Bring us benefit

As far as I'm concerned, I believe that  the NPC will bring us benefit which including growing salary ,social security and more education chance.  According to recent policies I find Secretary Hu and Premier Wen both care about peoples' life and fight over corruption firmly.Under their leadship, this NPC will produce many sound policies.
