(Photo by Qiao Qiming/People’s Daily Online)With flocks of sheep and cattle as well as golden highland barley, Tibet is especially lovely during autumn and winter. Right after reaping highland barley, 45-year-old Chodron in Dagze District, Lhasa, capital of Tibet, hurried to a farmers and herdsmen cooperative that produces and sells handmade traditional handicrafts.Chodron is a seamstress at the cooperative. Recently, she and her workmates have been working overtime as the cooperative received a great number of orders for school uniforms. In the past, she became idle after the harvest time.Established in 2012, the cooperative has provided jobs for 27 farmers and herdsmen like Chodron and brings them a monthly income between 2,800 yuan (about $394.49) and 6,000 yuan.“In the recent three years, we have developed suitable poverty alleviation industries to help farmers and herdsmen increase their income,” said Zhang Gan, secretary of the Communist Party of China Dagze District committee.Zhang added that in the first half of this year, the per capita disposable income of rural residents in Dagze District reached 4,623 yuan, more than 75 percent of which was generated by industries and paid by employers, representing a significant increase from the past.Five years ago, policy-generated income accounted for about 40 percent of the per capita disposable income of rural residents in the district.In the first half of 2019, the per capita disposable income of rural residents in Tibet was 4,009 yuan, up 12.5 percent year on year, which represented the greatest growth rate of per capita disposable income among provincial-level areas in the whole country. In particular, the per capita income from wages and salaries of rural residents grew by 47.3 percent.Villagers of the poverty-stricken Baka village, Bomi county, Nyingchi city of southwest China’s Tibet Autonomous Region harvest highland barley, a main cash crop, so as to process and sell the products at an early date.

In this year, the region aims to increase the disposable income of rural residents by more than 13 percent, and lift all the 150,000 people living in poverty and all the 19 impoverished counties out of poverty.var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Hongyu, Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9624137;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingCommentary: Chinas war on poverty bears global significanceOnline platform connects Chinas poverty-stricken counties with government purchasing channelsTop political advisor stresses winning fight against poverty27th International Day for Eradication of Poverty marked across worldXi stresses efforts to win battle against povertyChina makes remarkable achievements in the fight against povertyBeijing holds series of forums to mark National Poverty Relief DayScenery of Xiagangjiang snow mountain in Chinas TibetChinese NPC Tibetan delegation visits Switzerland, recounts development in TibetSenior official urges high-quality efforts to win battle against povertyWe RecommendScenery of Xiagangjiang snow mountain in Chinas TibetTwin white lion cubs born at Wild World Jinan, Shandong
