YINCHUAN, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- Xihaigu, one of China's poorest areas located in northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, has achieved a historic feat in eliminating absolute poverty.

Xihaigu is a largely mountainous region that was labeled the "most unfit place for human settlement" by the United Nations in the 1970s due to land reclamation, drought, and a fragile ecological environment.

Relocation has been a key measure for the region to alleviate poverty.

With the help of targeted poverty alleviation policies, more and more people are relying on their own efforts to abolish poverty.
