从 2 0世纪 5 0年代到 70年代末 ,我国先后在广东、福建等省区建立、扩大华侨农场 ,以安置归难侨 ,福建省的松坪华侨农场即为其中之一。作为一个在特殊历史时期形成的特殊社区 ,它在人口构成、对外联系网络、社会文化生活等方面都形成了自己的特色。 2 0世纪 90年代以来 ,华侨农场逐步转型 ,纳入地方经济发展的总体规划 ,各项改革措施已初见成效 ,但是 ,华侨农场如何与时俱进 ,在激烈的市场竞争中生存发展 ,还需要进一步在实践中探索From the 1950s to the end of the 1970s, a new institution named Overseas Chinese Farm was set up in Guangdong, Fujian and some south provinces of China to settle the returned overseas Chinese in groups. This paper traces the historical development of Songping Farm. The special attention has been paid to its population structure, community networks and cultural symbols. Since the economic reform widely spread in China, Songping Farm, together with other overseas farms all over the country, has been pushed to join the economic market competition. Some initial successes have been achieved. However, without the preferential policies provided by the relevant authorities towards the returned overseas Chinese farm, Songping Farm is facing serious challenges to make further development.
