Shenzhen to Pool Farmers for the Third Farmers’ Games

Shenzhen to pool farmers for third farmers' gamesAfter failing to attend the second Guangdong farmers sports meeting last week, Shenzhen will be sending a delegation to participate in the upcoming third farmers sports meeting. Shenzhen city agricultural bureau is hoping that the organizing committee will be imposing a less strict requirement for the participants.

After twenty three years of suspension, the second farmers sports meeting was held last week in Jiangmen. Shenzhen wasn’t able to attend because of lack of farmers due to the city’s urbanization in 2004. The organizing committee said that a city doesn’t need farmers to attend the sports meeting. There were Guangdong farmers working in Shenzhen that hold Guangdong hukou or permanent residency.

There are 2 million of Guangdong farmers living in Shenzhen and were very much qualified to participate in the farmers games. Several government departments are now soliciting farmers’ opinions to ask them whether they are interested in participating since it is ultimately up to the farmers to decide whether they want to join the games or not.
