On September 2017, Guangdong’s Lianjiang city signed a poverty alleviation agreement with Guangxi’s Rongshui Miao autonomous county. Subsequently they implemented point-to-point assistance involving in 30 primary and middle schools, five hospitals, 12 townships and towns and 12 administrative villages in both areas. To date, Lianjiang city has provided 147 million yuan in funds for Rongshui county and offered all-round support in industry, education, housing renovation, healthcare, culture, employment and tourism.

In the past three years, the Guangdong-Guangxi Cooperation Project has helped to lift 15.58 percent of the local impoverished population out of poverty and benefited almost 60% of the poverty-stricken population across the county.  

Located in the southwest of Guangdong province and the north of Leizhou Peninsula, Lianjiang city is known as “the base of China's small home appliance industry" and “the hometown of China's red orange." Meanwhile, the poverty incidence in Rongshui Miao autonomous county once reached 28 percent, making it one of the eight counties in Guangxi that still remained trapped in poverty. Since national poverty alleviation work was implemented in 2016, 89 poverty-stricken villages and 115,800 impoverished villagers have been lifted out of poverty.
