Chapter Summary

Chinas reform began in rural areas. At the Third Plenary Session of the Eleventh CCP Central Committee in 1978, the central government made the historical decision to launch the reform and opening campaign. Since the beginning of this reform thirty years ago, China has achieved substantial breakthroughs in critical areas of rural reform. This chapter provides a narrative description of the formulation of key policies enacted during the thirty years of rural reform and development. There are two caveats worth noting: first, key reform policies concerning rural development were not necessarily formulated in chronological order but were crisscrossed and applied an interactive way; second, each reform policy fell far short of reaching its ideal state and China must continue to deepen reform and refine institutions and mechanisms.

Keywords: China; Eleventh CCP Central Committee; rural development; rural reform policy; Third Plenary Session
