This video, produced by People's Daily, showcases Liangjiahe, a village where Xi Jinping once worked has undergone tremendous changes in a few decades.


In January 1969, 15-year-old Xi Jinping started living in Liangjiahe, Northwest China's Shaanxi Province. Later he started working there and was elected Party branch secretary of the village.

For seven years in the hardscrabble village, Xi led the villagers by introducing many advanced techniques to change their lives.


Liangjiahe used to have no electricity or traffic. Now, life in the village has improved a lot through people's hard work. The situation of Liangjiahe can be regarded as an epitome of a progressing China.
