In recent years, Maizhokunggar County of Lhasa City has taken the development of modern agricultural industrial clusters as an important measure to promote agricultural development, given full play to the guiding and driving role of financial funds, and taken multiple measures to support the establishment of modern agricultural demonstration park.

In 2017, with an investment of 60.4877 million yuan RMB, the modern agricultural demonstration park of Maizhokunggar County was built. 80 greenhouses, distribution center, refrigeration house and other ancillary facilities were built, and a variety of vegetables such as pepper, tomato, cabbage, melon and eggplant were mainly planted. As an important project of the pure land health industry, the modern agricultural demonstration park makes full use of employment transfer, land circulation, and profit sharing to help farmers and herdsmen increase income and get rich. In addition, through the cooperative business model of corporatization, it works actively with mining areas, primary and secondary schools, temples and nursing homes to improve the agricultural industry development system integrating "production, supply and sales" services.

Yangzom, 40 years old, is a worker of the modern agricultural demonstration park. She says, "I don't have a stable job before and the salary is not very high. Moreover, I have two children, the life is stressful. Now I am working in the park, which is not only close to my home, but also has good salary and bonus at the end of the year. I am very satisfied with this job."

"More than 80 people have been employed since the operation of the modern agricultural demonstration park. Next, it plans to provide 160 people with jobs and pay dividends to 90 poor families in the park every year. " says a person in charge of the park.

Since its establishment in 2017, the park has been operated in strict accordance with the technical regulations for the production of pollution-free vegetables. The products have passed the routine sampling test of the Ministry of Agriculture every year, and the annual qualified rate is 100%.
