Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, joined ethnic Miao villagers to make "huangba," a local traditional snack for festivals, during his inspection tour of southwestern Guizhou Province.
Xi on Wednesday went to Huawu Village in Xinren Miao Township of Guizhou for an inspection ahead of the Chinese Lunar New Year, which falls on Feb. 12 this year.
At the home of villager Zhao Yuxue, Xi chatted with the family while making huangba. The snack was made from sticky rice and soybean flour wrapped in reed leaves.
"Wish you a happier and sweeter life," Xi told the family.
