More and more impoverished people have benefited from poverty alleviation policies by local authorities, welcoming a brand-new life.

BEIJING, March 21 (Xinhua) -- Nestling deep in mountains of southwest China's Yunnan Province, Luoqiu Village is home to only dozens of households scattering in mountain valley. Villager Yan Fugao and his wife Wang Daxiang have lived here for more than 20 years.

Harsh mountainous environment here has severely restricted local people's economic activities and caused some of them poor. Yan Fugao's family is among them, and was identified in 2014 as a poverty-stricken household under China's standard of poverty evaluation. In 2017, local authorities made the decision to relocate impoverished people in Luoqiu Village to Maojiawan resettlement area, which is built for the poor in the province's Ludian County.
