As digital technology gradually integrates into various fields of economic and social development, the production and lifestyle as well as social governance methods of countries and regions involved in the Belt and Road Initiative are also constantly evolving. This is especially true for traditional rural areas, which are now encountering new development opportunities.

Numerous countries and regions are accelerating economic, cultural, and ecological development in rural areas and effectively advancing rural governance with the help of digital technologies.

In an agricultural high-tech industry demonstration zone in Yangling, Northwest China's Shaanxi province, satellite navigation technology, drones, as well as 3D modeling and printing are used to provide stronger support for the intelligent and precise management of agricultural production.

The World Internet Conference (WIC) Digital Silk Road Development Forum will be held on April 16 in Xi'an, capital city of Shaanxi.

"Digital Villages and Sustainable Development" is a key agenda of the forum. The participants will engage in discussions on such topics as leveraging digital technology to empower agricultural production, promoting the improvement of rural governance, and contributing wisdom and strength to rural development, poverty eradication, and the building of more efficient, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable digital villages globally.
