Pic story: Poverty alleviation work in China's Guangxi


Mo Youya, a girl of Dong ethnic group, stands in front of her award certificates in Pingliu Village of Dutong Township in Dong Autonomous County of Sanjiang, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Aug. 16, 2017. She was admitted to China's Southwest Jiaotong University in 2017. Due to harsh environmental conditions such as the stony desertification and mountainous landform, Guangxi has long been a less developed area in China. In recent years, local government carried out many measurements for the poverty alleviation work. Tens of thousands of officials and staff members helped local people build roads, repair houses, improve education and industry development. In 2016, more than 1.11 million people were liberated from poverty. The poverty-stricken population in the region has declined from 10.12 million in 2010 to current 3.638 million.
