The recent construction of a cargo cableway system at an isolated village in Southwest China's Guizhou Province has greatly improved transport links for local, who are now able to send vegetables for sale in other areas.

Dangzao Village, which is home to roughly 1,000 people, has been officially recognized as one of the most underdeveloped villages in the county of Danzhai in Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture.

Under the support of the local government, an agricultural development firm inked a partnership with the remote village in July last year to carry out the large-scale planting of vegetables with dual emphasis upon commercialization and ecology.

Local farmers have worked with the agricultural cooperative to set up five steel cableways in a move to save them much time and energy in the transportation of agricultural tools, fertilizers and crops.

So far, a total of 59 households, including 16 impoverished families, have jointly planted broccoli on farmland covering 195.5 mu or 13.2 hectares around the village.
