China to plow ahead with rural land reform in 2014, paper says

China will step up rural land reform this year to give farmers more control over their holdings, the Shanghai Securities News reported Monday, citing deputy land and resources minister Xu Deming. The government will roll out guidelines this year on the transfer, lease and shareholding of collectively owned rural land set aside for construction. The authorities will also revise the land management law to grant farmers legal rights and draft rules this year for property registration and rural housing, it said.
