By combining top-level design with local pilot practices, rural land system reform, as an important priority on the agenda of deepening comprehensive reform, has accumulated a series of replicable and applicable experiences that are conducive to amendments to relevant laws. This paper takes stock of the basic experience of Pidu District in addressing typical problems arising in its rural land system reform and then investigates the inner link between the reform and the persistence of high housing prices in cities, the capital flowing to the countryside, and the rural revitalization program. Based on this analysis, the author puts forward three basic directions of the rural land system reform: remain committed to marketization, balance the interests of all parties and promote the development of rural industries.
