Live: Water supply, paved roads change villagers’ life in NW China

CGTN published this video item, entitled “Live: Water supply, paved roads change villagers’ life in NW China” – below is their description.

Hidden in a valley of arid mountains in harsh environment, Bulenggou Village of the Dongxiang Autonomous County, northwest China’s Gansu Province was once a remote place with water shortage and no paved road to the outside world. But things have changed since Chinese President #XiJinping made a stop at the village during his inspection visit in Gansu in 2013. He said great efforts should be made to help the villagers lead a well-off life by ensuring water supply and building roads. Join us and see how the village has changed over the past few years. #ZeroPoverty2020
