In recent years, Luzhai County has strengthened its characteristic industries in poverty alleviation efforts. At present 89 percent poverty-stricken households in Luzhai County are engaged in characteristic industries, including planting, animal husbandry and rural tourism, which help increase their income. From 2016 to 2018, 19 poverty-stricken villages in Luzhai County have shaken off poverty, with the number of impoverished residents in the county dropping from 27,587 to over 14,000 people.
