A delegation from the School of Earth Sciences of Yunnan University -- located in Kunming, capital of Southwest China's Yunnan province -- visited Hebian village in Lushi town administered by Fengqing county on July 9-12, to visit villagers and check poverty reduction conditions there, according to YNU officials.
They said it was led by Tan Shucheng, dean of the School of Earth Sciences, joined by the school's deputy Party committee secretary Liu Heng and deputy deans.
Fengqing county was YNU's poverty alleviation project and the county announced it had got rid of its poverty in 2019.
Officials visited households in the village to get to know about the lives of residents recently, as well as their agricultural production and health conditions -- and encouraged locals to continue to forge a better life for themselves.
They also held discussions with village leaders, to learn about the village's land use and operation of its tea leaf factory -- which was built with YNU's help -- as well as to find out about its education facilities and construction of infrastructure.
YNU officials also discussed further plans for the village's development and gave advice on tackling difficulties.
