Cao Huimin, a female staff member from Manzhouli Frontier Inspection Station in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, has always made strict demands on herself and her work.
As the "north gate" of China, Manzhouli is the largest land port station nationwide, which shoulders more than 65 percent of the overland transport business in China-Russia trade.
In 2008, Cao graduated from college and joined the prominent department. Since then, she has always taken every opportunity to promote her ability.
She has read more than 10 books of regulations about exit-entry inspections and how to examine over 80 kinds of passports and more than 200 kinds of visas.
As a result, in the past six regional vocational tests, Cao received full marks in all the subjects and she also successfully cracked a case about an altered certificate in 2016.
"Getting 10 points per shot may not be the standard for soldiers but it is the rule that we should follow. There is no room for error," she said.
Apart from being a responsible officer, Cao also insisted on caring for passengers and providing them with better services whenever they need.
On March 19, a boy suffered a dislocated shoulder because of an accident whilst Cao was doing an inspection. After seeing the injury, Cao called the emergency center and finished the customs clearance in five minutes, assisting the parents to transfer the child to an ambulance in time.
Actually, such affairs happen frequently every month. During the past nine years, Cao helped over 300 people, saved five passengers’ lives, and retrieved great economic losses for both individuals and enterprises.
More than 100,000 Chinese labors are estimated to pass the Manzhouli Station at the beginning and the end of a year, according to official statistics.
In order to shorten waiting times, Cao always worked overtime to verify signatures for laborers. For those people who went abroad for the first time, the warmhearted woman would also explain detailed information about visas to them.
"We should improve our service awareness to contract labors. Except for being careful, sincere and caring, we need to feel for them. The life of working abroad is not easy. Let's bring the warmth of home to them at the port," Cao said.
Cao also showed her kindness in the public welfare events. Her and her colleagues jointly donated around 20,000 yuan (U.S.$ 3,076) and 600 items of supplies to promote poverty alleviation projects, and granted financial aid to help local impoverished students realize their dream of studying at university.
The public spoke highly of Cao's good deeds and she was honored as the model of supporting the government and cherishing the people.
