The development of “New Socialist Villages” is an important task that China must complete while in the process of modernizing in order to fully establish a prosperous society. Since the Sixteenth Plenary Meeting in October 2005, when the Chinese Communist Party formally promulgated the major task of constructing “New Socialist Villages,” various places throughout China have acted in response. In the face of such an important mission, the construction of “New Socialist Villages” has become a topic that is significantly related to China’s economic development and the realization of a prosperous society.


In the past few years, many places in China have successively implemented the development of “New Socialist Villages” at certain test sites, including the city of Guiyang in Guizhou Province. This paper has selected one of Guizhou’s model “New Socialist Villages”— the village of Jian Shan located in Guiyang — as the primary object of research and has, by means of interviews with village residents and on-site investigation and research, attempted to penetratingly and systematically analyze Jian Shan’s implementation of the “New Socialist Village” model, indicate its successes and failures, and give a comprehensive evaluation.
