Xi­a­men Uni­ver­sity Malaysia is the first over­seas cam­pus set up by a Chi­nese uni­ver­sity. The goal is to cul­ti­vate high-level pro­fes­sion­als with mul­ti­cul­tural back­grounds and an abil­ity to deal with com­pli­cated in­ter­na­tional af­fairs. It’s hailed as a bright pearl of the Belt and Road Ini­tia­tive. We are con­fi­dent we can de­liver more high-qual­ity in­ter­na­tional pro­fes­sion­als for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the ini­tia­tive. pres­i­dent of Xi­a­men Uni­ver­sity, NPC deputy In 2017, more than 23,000 of­fi­cials resided in im­pov­er­ished vil­lages to help the lo­cals out of poverty. As a re­sult of their ef­forts, 112 vil­lages and 259,600 ru­ral poor peo­ple have met the stan­dard to be elim­i­nated from the im­pov­er­ished list over the past year. They have won the re­spect and trust of the peo­ple.

mayor of Zhao­tong, Yun­nan prov­ince, NPC deputy Our vil­lagers now have ac­cess to elec­tric­ity and can travel by road. The lo­cal gov­ern­ment helped us build new houses. We also have stores, restau­rants and farm­stays, and vil­lagers can buy things by scan­ning codes via WeChat. I at­tribute the trans­for­ma­tion to Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping and the cen­tral lead­er­ship.
