BEIJING, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping has underlined the importance of making efforts to deepen the reform of the rural land system in the new era, prioritizing the protection of farmers' rights and interests.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, said in an important instruction that work to confirm, register and certify rural contracted land rights will ensure the protection of land contract and management rights, and will consolidate and improve the basic rural management system.

Solid efforts should be made in advancing work to extend the second round of land contracts for another 30 years after their expiry, said Xi.

Xi urged the fostering of new types of agricultural management entities, the development of agricultural socialized service organizations, and encouragement and support for the vast number of smallholder household farmers so that they can combine their development with modern agriculture, bringing vitality to the basic rural management system.
