Li Ruiying [Yunnan Daily]
Li Ruiying is the Party secretary of Gemorong Village, southwest China's Yunnan Province. She has spared no efforts to make on-site investigations and find solutions to develop the local economy in the last few years, according to officials.
Li started by changing rural traditional ideas and tapping innovation potential, introducing large enterprises and talents to teach villagers advanced agricultural techniques.
Through innovative work modes, the village was oriented to develop industries with local characteristics.
Chinese herbal medicine-planting, beekeeping, and walnut-planting became the village's pillar industries with relevant associations and cooperatives being established.
Li has made great efforts to organize and implement a drinking water project, infrastructure construction, and building roads. These have laid a good foundation for promoting economic development, say commentators.
As Party secretary, Li and her party branch brought various services to villagers. They simplified work flows and procedures, and carried out activities.
Yu Shaohua, a local, said, "Great changes have taken place, and we are leading a happy life. As a Party member for many years, I will follow the exemplary role played by Li, so that the Party spirit will always be upheld and inherited."
In 2012, when Li had an opportunity to get promoted to work at a county-level office, Li declined and said: "I am rooted in Lisu mountain village, and the countryside is my stage. That's why I chose to stay in Gemorong Village."
