Speaking of Yunnan's economic development, Xi called on authorities to accelerate poverty elimination efforts, to support the building of a moderately prosperous country by 2020. Xi highlighted poverty relief as the most arduous task and called for effective measures.

President Xi went first to Ludian County, which experienced a 6.5 magnitude earthquake in August last year. In Longtoushan Town, the epicenter of the quake, he reviewed post-disaster reconstruction efforts. Xi promised the locals that the government would continue to improve their standard of living, and increase investment in rural areas.
