Pan Congcong, a girl who graduated from Tsinghua Univeristy in 2015, serves as the Party secretary in Fengfang village in Tianlin County, Baise City, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, March 13, 2017. She helped local villagers build 22 chicken shelters, raised 100,000 chicken, and established a chicken cooperative. 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.
