Yang Li is busy at the gardenia planting base.Yang Li, a deputy to the National People’s Congress, today urged fishermen to go ashore on Dongting Lake.Reporter Fu Yu is located in the waters of Qingshan Island, Xiangyin County, Yueyang, Hunan province, south of Dongting Lake. There are fish leaping out of the water, some even break into the cabin.A few months ago, Yang Li, a deputy to the National People’s Congress and deputy director of jinzhou Village Committee of River Town, Qu Yuan District, Yueyang City, saw this scene on her way to investigate with the local fishery administration department.With the launch of the 10-year ban on fishing in the Yangtze River, the number of fish in some areas of Dongting Lake has increased significantly.As the ecological environment of the lake area continues to improve, the life of fishermen has become Yang Li’s concern.In a recent interview with Chinanews.com, she said that more targeted employment support should be given to fishermen so that they can “land on the shore, take root and become rich”.Yang Li is a native farmer of Dongting Lake.Over the past ten years, she has been advocating for the ecological protection and improvement of people’s livelihood of Dongting Lake.She has brought dongting Lake water, lake ecological map into the national two sessions, to show the outside world the latest achievements of Dongting Lake governance.In recent years, Yang has witnessed the dramatic changes in the lives of the lake’s fishermen, known as the “sky hanging families”, as the government has introduced a series of policies to help them settle down.”Instead of ‘floating on the water’, the fishermen are finally living a stable life with settled homes, and practical problems such as medical treatment, elderly care and education for their children have been effectively solved.”2021 will be the first year of a 10-year ban on fishing in the Yangtze River.Governments at all levels in Dongting Lake district are helping the fishermen to live and work in peace and contentment through skills training and labor export.”The lack of land is the number one problem these fishermen need to solve in their transition to farming.”Yang li found in her research that the problem of re-employment of some older fishermen was relatively prominent due to their low level of education and skills.As the leader of the village, Several years ago, Yang Li saw the economic value of gardenia gardenia. She set up a laboratory and a cooperative in the field, and led the farmers in the Lake district to develop gardenia planting industry to get rid of poverty and become rich by providing seedlings, training members and purchasing products.Now, cooperative farmers can realize an increase of nearly 3,000 yuan per mu.When the fishermen had no land, Yang li searched for information about the abandoned land and actively promoted the tripartite cooperation between farmers and fishermen with their own land and labor, and the cooperative provided technology and seedlings, so that the fishermen who had been “relying on water” for a long time could find a new way out after landing.After training, feng Linzhu, a local retired fisherman, quickly adapted to his new job at the Gardenia planting base, earning more than 4,000 yuan a month.He had “never dreamed of such a safe life”.In order to eliminate the worries of farmers, Yang promised to recycle the gardenia fruit and develop deep processing products such as gardenia tea and gardenia oil to market.In 2021, Yang Li accidentally came into contact with the live streaming of e-commerce, and began to try the live streaming of goods. As a result, the sales of the products soared, which made her think about how to let more high-quality agricultural products out of the Lake district through the live streaming platform.”Agricultural products must not rot in the fields, must be turned into commodities, so that farmers’ pockets drum up!”Yang li believes that rural revitalization, rural e-commerce promising.This year’s two sessions, she also called on relevant departments to strengthen traffic tilt, improve infrastructure construction and other measures to increase support for rural e-commerce;Through strengthening policy guidance and skill training, farmers’ online marketing ability will be improved to promote agricultural products to “go global” and “go far”.(after)
