Aerial photo taken on Feb. 24, 2019 shows the relocation community in Rongjiang County of Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture, southwest China's Guizhou Province. Altogether 1.32 million people living in remote and poverty-stricken areas in southwest China's Guizhou Province have been so far relocated to more developed communities thanks to the government relocation program. According to the provincial plan for poverty elimination, a total of 1.88 million impoverished residents in Guizhou will be moved into new homes by the first half of 2019, consisting 15% of the amount of people in the national plan for poverty elimination during the 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-2020). Alleviating poverty through relocation has been a "key drive" in the country's poverty reduction and the supply-side structural reform for the country during the past few years. China has set 2020 as the target to finish building a moderately prosperous society and eradicate poverty. (Xinhua/Liu Xu)
