Qingyan NIU


Over the past three decades, informatization in China’s rural areas has gained some achievements in several aspects including the development of informational environment, the construction of infrastructure, information resources and the basic service system, as well as the application of information technology. Despite all the aforementioned achievements, some problems regarding organization and management, capital investment, talent cultivation, and farmers’ consciousness of informatization remain to be solved. Based on the status quo of the development of rural informatization in China, this paper puts forward corresponding countermeasures to tackle the existing problems and these measures include actively engaging in the innovation of the system and mechanism, in the optimization of the rural information resources, in the improvement of the rural information service system, and in the pilot demonstration project and in the promotion of typical cases.
