Xia arrived at Qingping village, where the population is largely of Yi nationality, on January 5. Xia presented goods for Spring Festival to residents, and visited local households. Qingping village has rich natural resources and cultural heritage, which make a good foundation for poverty alleviation work. The officials were confident that Qingping village will overcome poverty soon.
