Huade County in north China's Inner Mongolia has established village-level garment processing workshops with help from Beijing, contributing to employment and poverty-relief in the area, say officials.

As part of the scheme, locals also received relevant technical training.

Now, since last year, over 40 workshops have begun to operate, offering jobs to nearly 1,000 women from poverty-stricken households.
