Xi made the remarks during his inspection tour in the village of Jinmi in Zhashui County, northwest China's Shaanxi Province.

Located in the Qinling Mountains, the village has shaken off poverty in recent years by developing the black fungus industry.

At the village's training center, Xi chatted amiably with villagers who were preparing for livestreaming marketing of their agricultural products.
