If you want to be rich, build roads first.

Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping has always been concerned about the development of rural roads.

  Starting from Lhasa, driving all the way to the southeast, the winding and smooth road is like a white ribbon winding between the snow-capped mountains, forests and canyons.

  “Is the road to Medog now open?” General Secretary Xi Jinping asked in March 2013 when attending the deliberations of the Tibetan delegation at the first session of the 12th National People’s Congress.

  On October 31, 2013, Medog, once a "plateau island", opened its first highway to traffic.

The Medog people thought that the history of seeing the world outside with their own feet was over.

  At the National Two Sessions in 2019, General Secretary Xi Jinping asked the person in charge of Gansu Province who was sitting next to him when he heard a deputy to the People's Congress of Gansu Province say, "My hometown does not have a highway yet. We also want to build a highway to speed up poverty alleviation in our hometown." Comrade: "How many counties in Gansu have no expressways?"

  On November 12, 2023, Linda Expressway was officially opened for operation.

After the 6.2-magnitude earthquake in Jishishan County, Linxia Prefecture, Gansu Province, this highway was called the "passage of life" by the people.

  Sections of roads connect the hearts of General Secretary Xi Jinping and the people.

A road becomes a bright road that benefits people's livelihood and connects the future.
