Land Reform Guideline Issued; the Land Remains State-Owned

Jinghua Times reported that the Ministry of Land and Resources has issued new guidelines on land reform, indicating that the reform of China’s rural land system is about to enter a pilot phase. 

According to the Ministry of Land and Resources, the guidelines on the eminent domain of rural land reform apply to the narrow scope of land acquisition, standardizing the eminent domain records, improving the mechanism for the mediation of disputes, publishing comprehensive public land acquisition information, and perfecting the mechanisms that are reasonable and standard in providing farmers with a number of means of protection. 
The Ministry of Land and Resources indicated that, regardless of rural land system reform, the land remains State-owned.
