Aerial photo taken on Aug. 28, 2019 shows a view of a poverty-relief relocation site in Silin Township of Tiandong County, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, a key region in China's anti-poverty efforts, has entailed identifying and set up files for about 710,000 people relocated from inhospitable areas during the 13th Five-year Plan period (2016-2020) as a key battle against poverty. The relocation program has been completed by the end of last year. Moving a large number of people out of environmentally-vulnerable mountainous regions helps achieve the dual objectives of winning the anti-poverty campaign and restoring the ecological environment. While lifting people out of poverty was the first step, efforts are also made to ensure that the relocated residents can settle down, have jobs and lead better lives. (Xinhua/Cao Yiming)
