CGTN published this video item, entitled “Liangjiahe: Where Xi Jinping’s poverty alleviation inspiration began” – below is their description.
#China #Politics #povertyalleviation
In 1969, a teenager from #Beijing joined 17 million Chinese students in the “Down to the Countryside Movement,” a campaign launched by Chairman Mao Zedong that asked #urban youth to experience life by working in rural areas.
He traveled to a desolate village on the Loess Plateau in northwestern China, and spent seven years living among its soft-dirt mountains and in its simple caves.
His name is Xi Jinping.
#Liangjiahe, a barren mountain village in #Shaanxi Province at that time, is now a prosperous place with modern #agriculture and a booming #tourism industry.
