Party secretary, 31-year-old Luo Zuocheng (C) sits with villagers in Xinzhai Village of Shechang Township in Longlin County, Baise City, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonoumous Region, March 14, 2017. Luo came to the village in 2015 and started a hog farm, which improved local people's income. 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.
