Since 1992, the Foreign Ministry has paired up with Malipo County in Wenshan Prefecture of Yunnan Province. Over 29 years, it has implemented 687 projects covering subsistence, education, sanitation, training, whole-village makeover and industrial development, and produced remarkable results. In Malipo County, envoys visited the projects constructed with the funds collected through the activity "Love Knows No Borders" held by the Foreign Ministry, including safe drinking water project, Malipo Ethnic Minority Middle School and the makeover project of Ping'anpo Village of Tianbao Town. In Xichou County, they visited rock desertification improvement project, and saw the local poverty relief feat in turning rocky deserts into farmland. Envoys also listened to the "diplomatic poverty alleviation" work introduced by representative of the Foreign Ministry at Malipo County, and praised the workers as a special group of "people's diplomats".

Le Yucheng expressed, China has lifted over 800 million people out of poverty. This remarkable achievement is China's enormous contribution to the global poverty relief cause, and the greatest human rights endeavor. This year marks the centenary of the Communist Party of China. Over 100 years, the CPC has always been committed to seeking happiness for the Chinese people and rejuvenation for the Chinese nation. The achievements of Yunnan Province in the battle against poverty, ecological improvement, and ethnic unity and progress are scored under the leadership of the CPC. We hope all envoys will introduce the contemporary China and the CPC based on your own experience in Yunnan Province, thus deepening understanding, friendship and cooperation between China and the world.
