Huang Fang congratulated on the official opening of Longping Rice Museum and put forward relevant suggestions for the next stage of development.Huang Fang advised that museums could appropriately add experience halls or practical projects to enhance visitors' sense of interest and participation.At the same time, FOCs at all levels should extensively absorb the rice cultivation culture of other regions, enrich the existing science popularization education work, and build the museum into the name card of Changsha and Hunan.In addition, English annotations could be added appropriately to make Longping Museum internationalization, attract more overseas Chinese second and third generations to understand rice culture, and help Yuan Longping realize the dream of "global coverage of hybrid rice".
