Foreign journalists were impressed by great achievements in the field of poverty reduction in Guizhou province, Southwest China. Furthermore, they marveled at the local pioneering innovations enabled by big data and high technologies during a recent media workshop held by the Belt and Road News Network (BRNN).

Bijie of Guizhou used to be one of the most impoverished cities in China; however, nowadays, countless villagers have moved from dark and shabby thatched cottages to houses built in new districts. Diana Forson of Ghana Broadcasting Corporation could not stop praising such efforts of the local government. "China is helping poor people live a happy life, live in better houses, and wear more beautiful clothes." She lauded, "This is a great cause, and the government and enterprises have paid a lot for it. Other countries, including my own country, Ghana, should learn from China."

"I envy China for pushing so hard to help the poor. It is a miracle for so many people to live such a good life in such a short time." Andrew Mtupanyama, the Technical Editor of The Nation in Malawi, shared Diana's viewpoint. He also concluded the local poverty alleviation work from three aspects: noticeable regional improvement, a large number of beneficiaries, and high promotion efficiency.

Not only were foreign journalists impressed by the poverty reduction efforts in Guizhou, but they also marveled at pioneering innovations in Guizhou Province. One of these innovative practices is the combination of big data and traditional shipping industry, which can help optimize the matching between truck drivers and goods with the help of the Internet, big data and artificial intelligence technology. In this way, the efficiency of freight can be improved.

"Guizhou's innovation in big data is amazing because it can control the whole process of goods transportation on a small screen and provide an effective reference for the government to manage the economy." said Alioune Diouf of Senegalese Press Agency (APS)."These pioneering innovations are likely to be rolled out worldwide in the future."

"We appreciate China's innovation and hope that China can help Africa improve its innovation capacity in various fields, such as applying AI technology to hospitals, media, manufacturing and so on," Jackson Mwewa, the Deputy Chief Subeditor of Times of Zambia remarked.
