Lianzhang village is a mountain village with more than 2,000 residents in Qingyuan. Surrounded by mountains and limited plain area, Lianzhang village was once classified as a provincial poverty-stricken village with low per capita disposable income.

In order to improve people's standard of living and build a moderately prosperous society, China has launched a large-scale poverty alleviation campaign since 2012. According to a white paper titled "Poverty Alleviation: China's Experience and Contribution", per capita disposable income of the rural poor increased from 6,079 RMB in 2013 to 12,588 RMB in 2020. As a result of the development, a total of 832 counties, 128,000 villages, and nearly 100 million people in China have shaken off poverty by the end of 2020, including Lianzhang village.

Data shows that the village has gotten rid of poverty (a total of 54 poverty-stricken families) with a per capita disposable income standing at 19,188 RMB in 2019. Moreover, in 2020, the annual per capita disposable income of all villagers reached 21,414 RMB, and 660 thousand RMB of the village’s general income was distributed to 2,417 villagers as dividends.

“Development so far has given a lot of money to a few rich people. So, you see the United Nations, and other governments are trying to find a way to fight (for) poverty alleviation. I was very happy to see that the Chinese government is doing the same.” Said Frederico Meyer, Consul General of Brazil in Guangzhou.

After all the villagers had been lifted out poverty, Lianzhang village is focusing on developing various industries to avoid the problem of returning to poverty.

Focusing on developing industries, the village takes the Modern Agricultural Industrial Park program and the Rural Revitalization Comprehensive Demonstration Zone as important platforms to build an integrated system of primary, secondary and tertiary industries.

Notably, as China’s first village with 5G coverage, farmers in Lianzhang enjoy more opportunities to increase their income with the help of short video and live streaming platform. “To see 5G technology in a village is really amazing.” Diyar Khan, Consul General of Pakistan comments:“It’s a very modern and a model village. Because we saw that technology is not only the property of cities. Technology can also be used in villages.”

At present, the province of Guangdong has built more than 90 thousand 5G base stations. The 5G signal has not only covered urban areas, but also many rural areas in the region.

Carlos Giralt, Consul General of Mexico in Guangzhou, said: “I was very impressed by the technologies related to the agricultural industry. Also, it is obvious that Lianzhang village has significantly improved living standards of its inhabitants.” By 2020, the collective income of the village has reached 2.08 million RMB.

He added: “We recognize these important advances; and definitely, we can learn from them.”
