Yang Si, a village doctor of Miao ethnic group, stands in Gaoba Village of Tongle Village in Sanjiang Dong Autonomous County, southwest China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Sept. 21, 2017. Yang has been a village doctor for 16 years and she witnessed the improvement of local transportaion. It is becoming easier for her to visit remote patients. 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.
