Aerial photo taken on Dec. 5, 2017 shows rural roads in Sirong Township of Rongshui Miao Autonomous County, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Though bordering the wealthy Guangdong Province and boasting a coastline of 1,500 kilometers, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region is a mountainous region and has long been plagued by poverty. Transport difficulties remained a major impediment to rural development, mainly in mountain-locked rural areas in Guangxi. Inadequate road access was common, and most of the time people had to walk. Many roads were either paved by dirt or small stones, which made the vehicles very bumpy and can barely get through. Poor transportation infrastructure blocked people and services from the outside and trapped the reclusive mountain dwellers in extreme poverty for generations. Improving rural road infrastructure has been accredited for accelerating Guangxi's poverty relief campaign.(Photos: Xinhua)
