Hancunhe Village

Beijing Hancunhe VillageHancunhe Village which can be dated back to 1100 years ago is an ancient village that located about 45 kilometers away to the south west direction of Beijing. It was said that a famous general named Han had his tomb constructed here during Liao Dynasty. As a model village in the suburbs of Beijing, it is well-known in China for its profitable construction company and high-tech farming, which have brought high incomes to its residents. Through generations of experience, local villagers realized that traditional farming could only meet their most basic needs. To get ahead financially, they had to industrialize and provide better services to the market. In 1978, Hancunhe started its first business, a construction team working on contract projects. Then local villagers earned most of their incomes building homes and offices in the capital. That team developed into the Hancunhe 5 Construction Group Corporation in 1994. The corporation which now consists of 22 firms with 96 construction teams and 12, 000 workers, makes more than US$7 million a year. The village also puts strong emphasis on modern farming techniques. The village has invested 20 million yuan (US$2.41rnillionj'oin developing a vegetable garden where foreign varieties of vegetables are grown. The garden is also open to tourists. An orderly place of clean streets and modern homes, the village has built more than 500 apartments and 20 multi-storey buildings. Hancunhe VillageVillagers pay only 10 percent of the cost, about 30, 000 yuan (US$3, 614), for housing under a six-year installment plan. The rest is subsidized by the construction company. In the residential area, entertainment and service facilities, such as parks, swimming pools, cinemas, supermarkets, banks and post offices, have also been built to enrich village life.
