In recent years, Zouping in Shandong province has been ramping up efforts to explore new ways to promote rural vitalization.

The construction of Party-branch-led cooperatives has been promoted in the city's 16 towns and subdistricts to improve the quality and efficiency of the collective economy.

The model of "Party branches + cooperatives + agricultural companies + farmers" has created a new path for rural vitalization in the city.

Up to now, Zouping has a total of 617 village cooperatives led by the Party branch, with the collective village income exceeding 10 million yuan ($1.47 million). The cooperatives have increased farmers' annual incomes by more than 20,000 yuan for over 30,000 households.
