JAAS Secretary Yan Shaohua of CPC (Communist Party of China) Party Committee led a delegation to inspect modern agriculture development in Jiawang, Xuzhou on June 7, 2014. The inspection aimed to further promote the compiling of the development plans for modern agriculture development in Jiawang, Xuzhou.

The delegates got the first-hand information about local agriculture and existing problems. Yan proposed that, the development goals of Jiawang should be ecologic, tourism-based, and modernized so that it will become the backyard garden of Xuzhou. More efforts should be made in the construction of modern efficient protected agriculture demo station, comprehensive demo station for hilly-area agriculture development and the demo areas for countryside sightseeing. He believes that the most powerful drive to local agriculture is the resources and specialties right there.
