Lankao County had been poor throughout history and suffered from frequent floods and sandstorms for centuries. Local authorities in Lankao County have been exploring ways to eliminate poverty such as hiring elite cadres, exercising strict supervision and carrying out financial reform over the past years. Lankao County's success in eliminating poverty is new proof of China's strong capability in leading the whole nation towards prosperity. [Xinhua]
