Zhong Baijun, secretary of the CPC Committee of Xijidang village, Ganyu district of Lianyungang, transformed the poor village into an affluent and harmonious village through consistent efforts. Recently, Zhong was elected as a deputy to the 19th CPC National Congress, an honor he considers not only an affirmation of his efforts, but also an encouragement and motivation for him on the way forward.

Being a Xijidang village native, Zhong began working in a breeding company in the county when he was young, and became a mid-level manager in the company in 1998 when he was 29. To lift the village out of poverty, the CPC committee of the village found Zhong and invited him to head the village. When the Party committee entrusted him with the job, he convinced his family to come back from the county to help the villagers who were struggling for proper meal every day.

Having worked in the village for nearly 20 years, Zhong always puts the people's interests at heart. Two decades ago, the Xijidang village was a poor village where single men couldn't find wives, but today the village has clean roads, green trees and houses standing in neat rows. All villagers have jobs, their per capita is nearly 22,000 yuan, and more than 140 people have started their own businesses. In 2016, the village realized the total industrial and agricultural output value of 320 million yuan. The villagers all attribute their happy life today to Secretary Zhong's leadership.
