Therefore, the Provincial Standing Committee decided to select and send three groups of cadres, 3,000 cadres in each group, to take jobs as the major secretary or secretary in the poor and backward villages to lead them to shake off poverty and backwardness.
The selected cadres took strengthening the construction of village-level Party organizations as their primary task. They also prioritized economic development and making a fortune for farmers when serving in the villages. In the past nine years, the accumulated investment in those villages reached more than 3.1 billion yuan, involving more than 19,380 economic development projects. In addition, they also recruited more than 61,000 Party members.
The work in the villages that the vast number of selected cadres participated in allowed them to experience situations that they would have never experienced working in organs. They learned more knowledge that they could have never learned in offices, and their will and work styles were also tempered by their experiences working in the grassroots level.
Duan said that the committee will continue to send more outstanding young cadres to serve in rural areas to strengthen the construction of a leading group in rural grassroots Party organizations through various channels and establish a training chain for cadres' growth and exercise from the grassroots level.By People's Daily Online 【1】 【2】
