Poverty Alleviation Project in Tianya District

Tianya District is taking a series of steps to help eradicate poverty in the region, in line with the central government’s poverty reduction plan.


Many measures targeting poverty have helped to improve residents’ incomes, such as the development of high-efficiency agriculture and highlighting rural tourism,which yielded better jobs, new farm produce and markets for many once-poor farmers.


Tianya District now is restructuring its agricultural sector by increasing high-efficiency farming and products such as dragon fruit, lotus flower and flamingo flower. Tianya District’s flamingo flower are sold throughout all provinces in China and exported to overseas markets including Swiss and Japan.


Agricultural experts are also invited to give lectures and provide training for local farmers, with topics covering new farming techniques, poverty alleviation policy explanations, industry development analyses, building confidence and benefiting thousands.


Nowadays, the domestic and international visitors to the Sanya’s scenic spots can also buy the local organic agricultural produce at farm-to-table prices, and purchase the travel gifts in one go during their sightseeing tours.
