Top: File photo taken in 1959 shows a female driver in Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture, southwest China's Guizhou Province. Bottom: Photo taken on July 5, 2019 by Ou Dongqu shows female driver Wan Xingli of Sui ethnic group in Sandu Sui Autonomous County of Guizhou. Wan has been a shuttle bus driver of a transportation company in Sandu for 20 years. She said drivers' work was very hard 20 years ago due to the poor transportation in mountainous Guizhou. There were few female full-time drivers at that time. In recent years, the number of female drivers increased gradually thanks to the improvement of transportation in the province. In 1949 when the People's Republic of China was founded, the Chinese people faced a devastated country that needed to be rebuilt from scratch after decades of warfare and chaos. After decades of unremitting endeavors and dedication by the Chinese people, China has grown to be the world's second largest economy. In 1952, China's GDP was 30 billion U.S. dollars, while in 2018, its GDP reached 13.61 trillion U.S. dollars, an increase of 452.6 times. A group of combo photos give you a glimpse of what Chinese people did decades ago and what they do right now. Undoubtedly, people from all walks of life in China with hard work and wisdom have made contributions to the country's development. (Xinhua)
