Jiangsu plans to build 100 characteristic agricultural towns and establish an online rural tourism platform in the first half of this year, Wu Peiliang, deputy to NPC and director of Agricultural Committee of Jiangsu said on Mar. 11.
These agricultural towns will feature a rich variety of agricultural products with distinct regional characteristics. They can turn agricultural parks into scenic spots, farm lands into parks, products into gifts and rural house to hotels. This can motivate farmers to start their own business and lead a better life.
The provincial agricultural committee will also integrate resources to build an online rural tourism platform of all agricultural scenic spots. Tourists will be able to search all scenic spots through the platform.
