Improved services

China will further facilitate village residents' access to everyday services such as mail and telecommunications, accelerate rural road construction, toilet renovation and sewage treatment, and improve the rural living environment, the Ministry of Civil Affairs announced in late July. The MCA and other authorities have released a guideline on enriching and improving comprehensive services at the village level. The guideline specifies efforts to advance the standardization of village clinics, and improve public health and basic medical care services. It also guides villagers and private entities to develop the rural service industry, ranging from retail, catering and hotels to hairdressing.
