Over the past 70 years, great changes have taken place in the village,

Dalong, 75, a former party secretary in Baji Village, has witnessed the great changes of the region.

Piled up with stones, houses in Baji used to be low and dark. Cattle and villagers took the same bumpy road.

By 2020, the total village income had reached over 37 million yuan (about $5.72 million), annual per capita disposable income about 47,000 yuan, and collective assets, 1 billion yuan.
