Maodong village in Xifeng county, Guiyang, Southwest China's Guizhou province, has become a beautiful habitat from an impoverished place.
The Party branch of the village has encouraged people to change their development concepts, and join the cooperative by pooling their land as shares. As a result, a dynamic rural tourism model that features flower planting, special agricultural product sales, catering and accommodation has taken shape in the village.
The village has planted 20 hectares of plums, achieving revenue of 50,000 yuan ($7,845) and offering more than 50 positions to locals.
Rural hotels and agritainments totaling 35 have thrived in the village based on its rich red tourism resources.
In addition, 12 welfare programs covering the children and elderly care, comprehensive services for residents and many other public facilities have been carried out, with 11 of them completed.
In order to make full use of the collective resources and capital, the local government is said to have separated its proprietary rights, management rights and contract rights, and has established an effective long-term profit distribution model.
