Based on China's targeted poverty reduction and eradication experience, the team established a poverty-reduction demonstration village in Zimbabwe.

"It's creative to apply China's poverty alleviation method in Zimbabwe. Our team shouldered the great responsibility of carrying out different agricultural projects in the village," Luo recalls.

He says the Zimbabwean media reported on the village's field of organic vegetables.

They also guided local farmers to raise chickens and rabbits and grow corn, and built a fresh water supply system and poultry hatching center.

The farmers can become shareholders in the village's cooperative and receive practical agricultural training from the Chinese experts. The average annual income of the village's 106 households nearly doubled to $1,150.

"It's very exciting news, both for the locals and us. It's a trial to establish such a village and we finally made it," Luo says.

The Zimbabwean government hopes to promote the demonstration village and its methods across the country, so as to boost its agriculture sector and increase the income of farmers.
