ITL Park assists village through industrial poverty alleviation efforts
Since the beginning of this year, Xi'an International Trade and Logistics (ITL) Park has assisted Qingping village, Bayuan town, Lantian county through industrial poverty alleviation efforts, effectively helping lift poverty-stricken households out of poverty.
Through the production model of "company + cooperative + farmer household," Qingping village has developed agricultural industries, such as sweet corn, edible mushrooms, and Chinese bee breeding.

With the help of ITL Park, the village signed a purchasing contract with Xi'an Henglv Technology Development Co, and expanded new sales channels, such as e-commerce platforms, community marketing, and WeChat marketing.
ITL Park has also developed a new industry for the village through a photovoltaic power generation project, while continuing to develop the agricultural industry in the village.
The project adopts the model of "enterprise + Party branch + poverty-stricken households," with a total installed capacity of 72 kilowatts, and an investment of 500,000 yuan ($71,112.63) by ITL Park.
After the project is completed, it is estimated that each poverty-stricken household’s annual income will increase by 500 yuan.
