Pull the goods for the plane with an unmanned vehicle! The performance soared 10 times. Wu Gansha’s Yushi Technology this year.

Pull the goods for the plane with an unmanned vehicle! The performance soared 10 times. Wu Gansha's Yushi Technology this year.

In the field of domestic autonomous driving, Yushi Technology, co-founded by Wu Gansha, former president of Intel China Research Institute, has to be mentioned.

However, due to shifting the focus of their work, Yushi Technology and Wu Gansha themselves have greatly reduced the frequency of speaking out since the middle of last year, which means "retiring from the rivers and lakes" and is slightly mysterious.

A few days ago, with the launch of GTIC 2018 Global Smart Car Supply Chain Innovation Summit, Chedong went to the Beijing office of Yushi Technology to have another in-depth dialogue with Wu Gansha, the guest of this summit, and learned about the breakthroughs made by Yushi Technology in technology research and development and commercialization during the dormant year:

Including the deployment of unmanned electric logistics trailers at the top three international airports in the world, the deployment of unmanned feeder vehicles in Zhejiang and Nanjing, the joint research and development of automatic parking service technology with domestic top automakers and time-sharing leasing enterprises, and the cooperation with passenger car enterprises to develop L2.5/L3 autonomous driving technology.

Wu Gansha even told the car that it has achieved a 10-fold increase in the number of customers, the number of contracts, the contract amount and the number of vehicles equipped with the automatic driving system, and the results are gratifying.

"Retirement" Achievement: Finalizing Master Plan

"The first year of entrepreneurship is blowing outside, the second year is blowing inside, and the third year is blowing again." As for the reasons for keeping a low profile in recent years, Wu Gansha explained this.

In his view, the first year of starting a business is nothing more than looking for someone to find money, the second year is to find business cooperation with customers, and the focus of the third year is on the one hand to cash the blown cows, and on the other hand, the rapid growth of the company needs "calcium supplementation", especially in refined management and cultural construction.

Wu Gansha told Che that during the "silence" of Yushi Technology, the team completed a very important thing, that is, finalized the Master Plan—— of Yushi Technology-the company’s overall development plan for the next five to ten years. It is understood that the plan is divided into three parts:

First of all, in the field of commercial vehicles and special vehicles, we should try to find a direction that is suitable for autonomous driving technology and can bring high profits at the same time, so as to accumulate research and development data and build corporate image while earning income.

Secondly, after the technology has been developed to a certain extent, we will start to cooperate with passenger car manufacturers to mass-produce and deploy parking service and L2/L3 autonomous driving technologies.

With the gradual increase of deployed vehicles, Yushi will be able to accumulate more data to improve the mass-produced autonomous driving technology, and at the same time, it will start the "shadow mode", that is, collect the road condition data of mass-produced vehicles through the sensors of existing vehicles, and train the decision-making algorithm of L4/L5 autonomous driving technology on the on-board computing platform.

Finally, Yushi Technology hopes to deploy an autopilot system with "shadow mode" on 10 million production vehicles in the future, so as to ensure that each iteration of L4/5 autopilot algorithm can complete tens of billions of kilometers of real vehicle verification within one month. Finally, mass production of L4/5 autonomous driving technology will be realized around 2025.

In addition to making a grand, even slightly exaggerated Master Plan, Yushi Technology is also recruiting a lot of people to ensure the realization of the above plan.

Wu Gansha told Che Dongxi that Yushi Technology currently has three R&D bases in Fangshan, Haidian, Beijing and Jiading, Shanghai, and its research engineering team is close to hundreds of people.

In addition, Yushi Technology also has a trial production, testing and application innovation center in Jiaxing, Zhejiang Province, which is engaged in batch modification of self-driving vehicles, production and testing of low-speed vehicles, and has offices in Liuzhou and Shenzhen to carry out trial operation and joint research and development with partners.

Business progress: achieve four tenfold growth in one year.

Master Plan of Yushi is ambitious, but it is a plan after all. Cars are actually more concerned about what practical achievements Yushi Technology has made in the past year.

"10 times." Wu Gansha said with a smile, "and it is still four times 10 times."

He told Chedong that during the year from August 2017 to August 2018, Yushi Technology has achieved a 10-fold increase in four key indicators: the number of customers, the number of contracts, the contract amount and the number of vehicles equipped with Yushi automatic driving system. At present, it has more than 20 customers, of which about 80% are car companies, covering independent, joint venture and foreign-funded brand manufacturers, as well as passenger cars and commercial vehicles.

"This year, it is obvious that there are more customers of joint venture and foreign car companies," Wu Gansha explained. "The self-driving technology developed abroad may not be able to adapt to the complicated domestic road conditions, and the internationally accepted data governance regulations do not allow data to be sent abroad, so joint venture and foreign car companies also need local research and development and local partners."

Wu Gansha also showed the car a video of a specific project at the scene.

One of them is in the top three international airports in the world, and Yushi Technology has deployed several self-developed unmanned electric logistics trailers. These vehicles are parked next to the plane, and after the luggage and other goods on the plane are unloaded, this unmanned vehicle drags the goods to the unloading area.

The video shows that this special vehicle can still run normally in heavy rain, and its automatic driving system can stop immediately to avoid collision when it recognizes the mineral water bottle and silk scarf that the tester suddenly throws into the middle of the road.

Wu Gansha told the car that because there is no cover and air conditioning, the drivers of airport special vehicles work in harsh conditions such as high and low temperature and loud noise from taking off and landing all the year round. Therefore, although the subsidy is high, they still can’t keep people, which has become a headache for airport operators.

Unmanned vehicles do not have these problems, so they received a positive response from the airport. After rigorous technical tests, the two sides quickly reached a commercial cooperation.

Most importantly, the project is not used for demonstration purposes. The data and operational experience accumulated by Yushi can not only continuously improve its driverless technology, but also deploy more unmanned vehicles at the airport to achieve benign development. Wu Gansha predicts that the project will start unmanned operation without on-board safety personnel within half a year. And this is the first step of Master Plan of Yushi Technology.

Technical progress: automatic parking service and L2.5 go first.

In the field of passenger cars, Yushi is currently promoting commercial landing mainly around AVP and L2+ autonomous driving technology.

In addition to the above-mentioned airport video, Wu Gansha also showed Che Dongxi his technology Demo of developing AVP(Automated Valet Parking) automatic parking service for an independent passenger car brand.

In the video, a passenger car equipped with AVP technology drives to the door of an underground garage, and then the human driver gets off, and the vehicle drives into the basement to find the designated parking space and back into place. When the driver needs to drive, operate on the mobile APP, and the vehicle will drive on the road from the garage by itself.

It is understood that the AVP system of Yushi can be realized only by low-cost sensors such as cameras and ultrasonic radars, and its products have two modes:

1. For the parking spaces in fixed parking lots, vehicles can remember the corresponding routes by learning the driving of human drivers, so that the automatic parking service can be completed without relying on high-precision maps.

2. For parking spaces in unfamiliar parking lots, vehicles can find designated parking spaces or random empty parking spaces by themselves with the support of limited high-precision maps, and complete parking.

Wu Gansha told the car that this AVP system is being jointly developed with the OEM, and it is expected to cooperate with the OEM or the head time-sharing company to achieve scale deployment before the end of this year.

In addition to AVP system, another major layout of Yushi in the field of passenger cars revolves around L2+ autopilot technology, which is called L2.5 and L2.8 autopilot technology within Yushi.

Its L2.5-level technology can be simply understood as an upgraded version of Tesla Autopilot system. On structured roads such as expressways, vehicles can not only control their own speed and keep driving in a single lane, but also realize safe and automatic lane change.

The main body of L2.8 technology is the same as L2.5 technology, and the core is to increase the function of up and down ramps. According to Wu Gansha, the L2.8 technology of Yushi Technology should realize the automatic driving function of toll station-toll station, that is, consumers can give it to vehicles to drive when they drive to the toll station, and then they will be driven by humans after arriving at the destination toll station.

Of course, because this technical positioning is still below L3 level, human drivers still need to monitor the road conditions and be ready to take over at all times during driving, which is similar to the general Super Cruise positioning.

Wu Gansha revealed that this set of L2+ autopilot technology has basically matured, and is currently communicating with the OEM. It is expected that the SOP will be mass-produced as soon as 2020–this is the second step of the Master Plan.

Shadow mode: speeding up unmanned research and development

In the Master Plan, the shadow mode mentioned above plays a very important role, which is an important step to complete the research and development, data accumulation and verification of L4 autonomous driving technology.

After the above video demonstrating AVP automatic parking service technology, Wu Gansha also showed the progress of L4-class automatic driving technology.

In the video, the above-mentioned automatic parking service vehicle switches to L4 automatic driving mode after driving out of the parking lot, and automatically drives to the exit of the park. After the identification crossbar is lifted, it drives into the open road for testing.

In this process, the car has experienced many scenes such as crossroads/traffic lights, roundabout, tunnels, cities and highways, and it has successfully completed the driving task even in the face of complicated road conditions such as motor vehicles and non-motor vehicles, pedestrians and courier brothers.

According to Wu Gansha, this open road is an intelligent networked vehicle open test section that cooperates with the high-end manufacturing base in Fangshan District. It has long been a routine operation to conduct driverless testing on this section, and it has also experienced the test of bad weather such as heavy rain and severe winter. At present, Yushi is actively cooperating with OEMs to apply for road test licenses in Beijing, Shanghai and Jiashan, Zhejiang.

Open the trunk and there is only a clean "small box" in the car. This is the car brain independently developed by Yushi, which is equipped with two sets of algorithms, one is the above-mentioned automatic parking service system, and the other is the L4-level automatic driving which is still in iteration.

When the vehicle equipped with the car brain is driven by human beings, the algorithm of L4-level automatic driving technology verifies the algorithm by sharing data with the sensor under the condition of ensuring privacy, thus realizing the shadow mode.

Wu Gansha revealed that the car brain is fully developed in accordance with the car regulations, supporting a variety of chip mix and match schemes such as GPU, ASIC or FPGA. At present, the OEM is progressing smoothly.

Future play: positioning Tier 0.5

The entrepreneurial wave of autonomous driving technology has been rising for several years. Emerging companies and technology companies have two main directions in business models. First, unmanned taxis or unmanned car routes represented by industry leader Google Waymo also include startups such as Uber, Didi, Roadstar.ai

Another group of companies hope to provide auto-driving solutions with integrated software and hardware for mass production and loading, similar to what Tier1 does in the automobile industry.

Pull the goods for the plane with an unmanned vehicle! The performance soared 10 times. Wu Gansha's Yushi Technology this year.

▲ Yushi employees debug vehicles.

In the view of the first type of companies, technology companies have the problems of lack of experience and high threshold when they cut into the automobile industry. Therefore, it is better to cooperate with companies in the automobile industry to make unmanned vehicles and directly engage in the operation of unmanned car rental. The second kind of companies think that software technology is the weakness of the automobile industry companies and they have the ability to become the new Tier1.

Wu Gansha positioned Yu Shi’s choice of science and technology in the latter.

"Rand data shows that autonomous driving technology needs to run to 11 billion miles to prove statistically that it is safer than human drivers. If you want to run so many journeys, you need more vehicles equipped with shadow mode to run data." Regarding the reason for choosing the second route, Wu Gansha explained this.

At the same time, he also believes that the automatic driving system needs to be iteratively upgraded, which is different from the traditional one-off automobile parts. Therefore, Yushi defines its relationship with automobile enterprises as Tier0.5, that is, from the beginning, it will carry out joint research and development and joint data operation with automobile enterprises, instead of providing independent research and development parts systems to automobile enterprises like the traditional Tier1 and then matching them with the vehicles of the automobile factory.

At present, Yushi Technology has carried out joint research and development with many domestic automobile manufacturers, and its micro-circulation unmanned minibus and bus jointly developed with a head bus manufacturer will also be unveiled soon.

Conclusion: Autopilot veteran speeds up again.

Founded in early 2016 and headed by Wu Gansha, former president of Intel China Research Institute, Yushi Technology is regarded as one of the earliest self-driving startups in China. After intensive exposure at the beginning of its establishment, Yushi Technology began to fall into silence in the second half of 2017, even giving people the illusion that the company has fallen behind.

However, after two hours of in-depth communication with Wu Gansha, Che Dongxi clearly realized that Yushi Technology, a veteran autopilot, had not fallen behind, but had more achievements, which were illustrated by winning dozens of customers, deploying special unmanned vehicles at the top three international airports in the world, and developing L2+ autopilot technology and automatic parking service system for mass production.

With the determination of Master Plan for the next five years by Yushi Technology, the forward speed of this veteran will be further accelerated.

New Year’s Eve has a strong flavor (going to the grassroots in the New Year and basking in my family’s New Year’s Eve)

Editor’s note: New Year’s Eve carries the most sincere expectations and the strongest affection in a year. On this New Year’s Eve, in Wushi County, Xinjiang, the resident cadres who stuck to their posts ate pilaf; In Jiaozhou, Shandong Province, the father and son who got rid of poverty set new goals; In Mohe, Heilongjiang, tourists experience the culture of Northeast China in the Arctic Village. In Jiangjin, Chongqing, the New Year’s Eve dinner for poverty-stricken farmers is much richer than in previous years. In Zhuzhou, Hunan Province, villagers who moved from ex situ to help the poor had a reunion dinner in their new houses. In Huangpu District, Guangzhou, the left-behind workers spend the New Year in a foreign land … This special and unforgettable New Year’s Eve dinner is a review and tribute to past efforts, but also a prospect and expectation for a new beginning.
Race against time and keep pace with history. In 2020, we will build a well-off society in an all-round way; In 2020, it is also the year of decisive battle against poverty. Strugglers in the new era, let’s continue to unite as one and work hard to move forward rain or shine!
Xinjiang Wushi Resident Task Force
It’s so happy that the villagers are all out of poverty and staying in the village.
Our reporter Yang Mingfang altak
On the 24th, Lunar New Year’s Eve. In Kumbulong Village, Aotebeixi Township, Wushi County, Aksu Prefecture, Xinjiang, the flavor of the year is strong in the village committee courtyard.
"Dinner!" Zhu Lidong, the general leader of the "Visiting Huiju" of the Forestry and Grassland Bureau of the Autonomous Region in Wushi County, the first secretary of Kumbulong Village and the captain of the resident team, has a loud voice and greets the team members to hurry to the table. During the Spring Festival this year, all 12 members of the task force stayed in the village for the New Year.
A pot of pilaf and half a sheep, a pot of green tea makes a short story. "Everyone can’t go home for the New Year, so they have a reunion dinner in the village." Zhu Lidong served everyone a bowl of delicious hand-grabbed rice. What makes Zhu Lidong feel gratified is the change in the village. In recent years, the task force has helped villagers get rid of poverty and become rich by promoting the quality and efficiency of the forest and fruit industry, and the per capita annual income has increased from 9,000 yuan in 2017 to 13,000 yuan.
After graduating from graduate school, Zhao Dachuan, a young man from Shandong Province, worked in the Forestry and Grass Bureau of the autonomous region and was sent to stay in the village. This is his third Spring Festival in the village. "As a poverty alleviation specialist, what makes me most happy is that at the end of 2019, 32 poor households in the village were all lifted out of poverty."
There is a special little guest at the dinner table-Zhu Yuxin, the 6-year-old daughter of team member Zhu Yuefeng. Zhu Yuxin said that after Dad came to the village, he became very busy, and sometimes he didn’t have time to video with her. "Mom took care of her little brother at home, so I came to accompany Dad!"
After listening to Zhu Yuxin’s little friend’s words, Ainiwal Anshan, the vice captain of the task force, smiled lovingly. This year is the fifth year for Ainiwal to stay in the village. In the work in the village, what makes Ainiwal feel the most is the change in the village; What warms him most is the family-like atmosphere among the members working in the village. "The members come from three different nationalities, just like a family. We usually work together, regardless of you and me."
"They left their homes and businesses to do good things for the people. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts." Aminah M Kadir, a local cook hired by the team, has been helping the team for almost five years. In her and the villagers’ hearts, the resident team members have already become relatives.
This Spring Festival, not only Kumbulong village, but also more than 70,000 village cadres from 12,000 "visiting and gathering" teams in Xinjiang, most of them stick to their posts and look forward to handing over a satisfactory answer sheet in the year of decisive battle against poverty.
Yang Wei ‘an and Yang Xiaoliang, Jiaozhou, Shandong Province
Set a new goal for poverty alleviation New Year’s Eve.
Our reporter Pan Junqiang
On New Year’s Eve, every household in Songjiatun Village, Jiaolai Street, jiaozhou city City, Shandong Province, was happy with Spring Festival couplets and blessings.
"Old man, take this dumpling out." The voice of his wife, Zhang Guirong, flew out of the house, full of anger. In the yard, Yang Wei ‘an was chatting with his neighbor. He answered, went into the main room and brought a whole set of dumplings with sorghum stalks into the side room. This is his family’s New Year’s Eve. The old couple are over 70 years old and still healthy and tough.
"Go, show you the new year’s goods prepared by my family." Zhang Guirong got up and pushed open the side door. The aroma was fragrant, fried yellow croaker, rice cake with dates, and Jiaodong big cake. She opened the refrigerator, chicken legs, dried shrimps, fish … all kinds. "Before the Chinese New Year, it was difficult to eat a decent jiaozi." Zhang Guirong said. Nowadays, it is not only the Spring Festival couplets on her door that are booming, but also the better days. Four years ago, Yang Wei ‘an and his son Yang Xiaoliang got rid of poverty together. It was not easy to get back to poverty at the beginning, but now they are stable, have something to do and have a deposit. "Thanks to the help of the party and the government, we have a good day today." Yang Weian was filled with emotion.
It was getting dark and my son Yang Xiaoliang came. My son separated after he got married, but it was less than 200 meters away from Yang Wei. On New Year’s Eve every year, Yang Xiaoliang’s family comes to spend the New Year with the old couple.
On the New Year’s Eve dinner, the father and son sat on the kang, guarding jiaozi, and Yang Wei ‘an scalded the wine, chanting, "jiaozi drinks wine, and the more you eat, the more you have!"
After half a bowl of wine, Yang Weian opened his mouth. Sixteen years ago, a car accident caused Yang Xiaoliang to suffer from a comminuted skull fracture, blindness in his left eye and disability. Parents are old, and Yang Xiaoliang can’t do heavy work. His daughter-in-law takes care of him and his children at home, and occasionally takes time out to do odd jobs to subsidize the family.
The reason for the change is that Yang Xiaoliang wants her daughter to continue to study hard. The prostitute has been studying very well. "After high school, it is more expensive to pay tuition fees to buy materials than in primary and secondary schools." Yang Xiaoliang said that he thought about it for a long time and felt that raising sheep was the most suitable. "I have to thank the poverty alleviation cadres, help me apply for a poverty alleviation fund of 3,500 yuan, and buy a male, five mothers and six sheep. This is the seed of poverty alleviation; I have to thank the technicians of the animal husbandry and epidemic prevention departments for giving us free guidance. " Now, my daughter is in her senior year and has just taken the postgraduate exam.
Now, there are more than 70 sheep at home. Yang Weian told Yang Xiaoliang that this year we will work harder to get rid of poverty and strive to get rich.
Heilongjiang Mohe nonlocal tourists
Meet in Beiji Village and Experience the Year of Northeast China.
Our reporter Fiona Fang.
"Happy New Year! Give everyone a free New Year’s Eve dinner tonight! " On the morning of New Year’s Eve, in Arctic Village, Mohe City, Heilongjiang Province, he ye, the proprietress of the Youth Hostel’s Friends’ Home, set out. While introducing the activities in the evening to tourists, she filled the table with candy and nuts, and handed out a few to everyone.
It is the practice in the store to provide delicious New Year’s Eve dinner for everyone.
Li Xiaoyun, a volunteer who helps in the store, is from Guangzhou. A month ago, she accidentally saw the information that the store was recruiting volunteers to be responsible for the reception at the front desk, so she went there with pleasure. Her job includes food and accommodation, and she can visit the Arctic Village after work. "I just want to experience the year here." She said that she experienced a lot of northeast folk customs this time, and she also learned to pack jiaozi with the proprietress.
Chicken stewed mushrooms, a bumper harvest, pot-wrapped meat … At 5 pm, the New Year’s Eve dinner was officially opened, and delicious food was served one after another. The atmosphere of 2008 allowed people who had never met each other to get to know each other quickly and come to raise your glass together.
Hu Li, a tourist from Jiangsu, is the third time to come back to the Arctic Village. "I can’t play enough at once. The most important thing is that I really miss the food here." Said, and he picked up a frozen pear on the table, "this thing, we can’t eat it at all. Bite it down, it’s sweet and icy, and it tastes great! "
Behind the good tourism experience is the efforts made by Mohe municipal government to optimize the tourism market.
"Since December 20th last year, it is still hard to get a ticket to open a train from Harbin to Mohe every day. We set up a comprehensive administrative law enforcement brigade to make unannounced visits to scenic spots, find problems in advance and solve them well, and improve the comfort of tourism. " Feng Guangqing, Party Secretary and Director of Mohe Municipal Bureau of Culture, Sports, Radio, Film and Television and Tourism, said.
During dinner, Hu Li discussed with his friends and went to other scenic spots in Heilongjiang in summer.
"Let’s drink to the Arctic Village and have a happy New Year!" There was laughter in the room, and under the inky night sky, gorgeous fireworks lit up this tourist hotspot in the northernmost part of the motherland.
Chongqing Jiangjin Poverty Alleviation Farmer Yang Wanliang
Life is easy, and the annual meal is rich.
Our reporter Liu Xinwu
One yard, two houses. On one side is an adobe house, and the wooden door creaks when touched. On one side is a new house with white walls and black tiles, and the "New Year’s Eve" is here.
As soon as the reporter entered the room, Yang Wanliang was enthusiastic, and oranges and sweets piled up on the table. The joy of the New Year is full of joy in Yang Wanliang’s face. "Now the days are better and the annual meal is richer!" Yang Wanliang dragged everyone around the house. There was a big barrel in the kitchen. When the lid was lifted, the bacon smelled delicious. In the vegetable garden, cabbage, radish and lettuce grow well.
Braised pork smells delicious, boiled fish is fresh and tender, and lettuce leaves are green and appetizing … This year, Yang Wanliang’s family reunion dinner is much richer than in previous years.
Piluo Village, where Yang Wanliang lives, is located in the south of Yongxing Town, jiangjin district, Chongqing, with high mountains and steep slopes. It was once a poor village at the municipal level, and 1/10 of them were poor households. Yang Wanliang was one of them. In order to help poor households increase their income, the village has formulated a "one household, one policy" assistance plan. At first, Yang Wanliang didn’t buy it, waiting for "relief". "Forget developing the industry, can you help me buy a mobile phone?"
Help the poor first. Knowing the situation, Xu Yuanfeng, the first secretary in the village, intends to "stimulate" him and take him to visit poverty-stricken households. Seeing someone else’s new house, Yang Wanliang’s expression is somewhat complicated.
After repeated persuasion, Yang Wanliang was determined to "do it". After careful comparison, he decided to raise chickens. The village helped him to contact and buy chicken seedlings, and asked experienced farmers to teach him by hand. Yang Wanliang raised 50 chickens in the first batch and got a grant. The agricultural cooperative helped him introduce buyers. With the help of policies, Yang Wanliang spent less than 20,000 yuan to build a new house. There are also public welfare posts in the village to help employment. In March 2019, he became a road cleaner with a monthly salary of more than 1,000 yuan. At the end of the year, Yang Wanliang calculated an account, earning 4,000 yuan from selling livestock and 10,000 yuan from sweeping the floor. Together with the income from selling chickens, he has earned more than 20,000 yuan in one year.
In the second half of last year, Yang Wanliang got rid of poverty and took off his hat. In order to facilitate contact, he bought a smart phone and learned to use WeChat. "It’s so convenient, and you can video chat!"
Villagers who moved in Zhuzhou, Hunan Province
After eating this meal, it is a family.
Our reporter Chen Yuanyuan.
On New Year’s Eve, in the centralized resettlement site for ex situ poverty alleviation and relocation in Huachong Village, Longmen Town, Lukou District, Zhuzhou City, Hunan Province, villager Huang Yousheng had a special reunion dinner. Not only his family, but also his neighbors and village cadres had dinner.
Referring to the change of living conditions, Huang Yousheng found out the photos of the old house. "My hometown is an adobe house, and the air leaks and the rain leaks." At the end of 2017, Huang Yousheng’s family moved into a new house at the resettlement site. "Now the house is big, and the income of the couple working together with poverty alleviation and dividends from the village industry is more than 50,000 yuan a year." Huang Yousheng’s neighbors are all villagers who moved from Huachong Village to help the poor. There are 8 households with 21 people, and now they have all got rid of poverty.
Huang Yousheng’s father was seriously ill and his son was sick. The burden of life once overwhelmed him. "Now I am not poor. This year is a good year, and there will be more hope in the coming year."
Into the resettlement site, hung red lanterns, brand-new Spring Festival couplets, put up a shed in front of the house, and put a brazier in the middle of the shed, which is warm and clean.
In the greenhouse, the drama has begun. Jinghu solo, Huagu Opera, Pop Songs … Wei Libin, a staff member of the literary squad of Zhuzhou Drama Heritage Center, performed six grounded programs with his team members in one breath. At the end of the performance, some villagers were not satisfied, so they simply went on stage and said a jingle: "The working team sent by the district was tired for poverty alleviation. They climbed high slopes in five years of cold and summer and tried their best to build a golden nest."
The kitchen is next to the stage, and the local cookhouse squad with the best reputation personally cooks. I heard that it was a holiday for poor households. Master Fu Lima promised: "I have to cook this meal. Everyone comes from different places and eats this meal, which is a family." The menu design is also satisfying, symbolizing the "family photo" of reunion, and the braised pork of happiness … 12 dishes, 8 tables of banquets, everything is complete.
Chen Xiangquan, an idle villager, came to help from another resettlement site early in the morning. In the past, Lao Chen earned less than 10 thousand yuan. "I am still young, how can I not live a good life?" Now, Lao Chengan raises and does business, earning nearly 80,000 yuan a year. When Mr. Chen was mentioned, everyone in the village gave a thumbs up.
The new year breeds new hope. Wang Shuai, director of the Poverty Alleviation Office in Qikou District, said: "This year, we are heading for a well-off society in an all-round way, so that everyone’s life will flourish."
Guangzhou Huangpu left-behind workers
Stick to a foreign land on the construction site for the New Year.
Our reporter Li Gang
On New Year’s Eve, Pan Qingyu from Guilin, Guangxi, and more than 10 left-behind workers walked into the canteen of the construction site at the Nano Valley site of China Construction Railway Investment Rail Transit Company in Huangpu District, Guangzhou, Guangdong. At the age of 23, this year is the first time that he left his parents to spend the New Year in another country, so it is inevitable that he will miss home. But I am not lonely when I am talking and laughing with my workmates.
According to Guangdong customs, on New Year’s Eve morning, Pan Qingyu put on new clothes and went to the nearby Guangzhou Knowledge City Flower Market with his workers. When in Rome, he did as the Romans do, chose a pot of azaleas, bought Spring Festival couplets and the word "Fu", went back to the construction site to carefully tidy up the dormitory, put up Spring Festival couplets and put flowers on it, and it was really the New Year.
After the New Year’s dinner, the workers arrived, everyone gathered together, poured drinks and clinked glasses, and the atmosphere of the festival group year immediately came up.
Unlike Pan Qingyu’s family’s new year’s big dish, today’s reunion dinner is just a pot of vegetables. A table is a pot, and a pot is a table. Not only he, but even Li Changbiao, the warehouse property manager who has worked outside for more than 30 years, has never seen this kind of New Year’s dinner. The most conspicuous thing in the "big pot dish" is a whole grouper, as well as big crabs, shrimps, boiled chicken, roasted goose, mushrooms, oily tofu and more than 10 hard dishes, which make a big pot full. This is the characteristic of the coastal areas of southern Guangdong, where one pot and one table are full, and through a pot full of layered dishes, it means reunion and wealth, hoping for a bumper harvest.
Pan Qingyu told reporters that before the holiday, he had delivered the company’s Spring Festival gift package to his home, and bought a lot of new year’s goods online and sent them directly to his home, expressing his wishes to his parents through WeChat transfer.
The New Year’s Eve dinner is indispensable in Guangdong, and everyone present has a share. Xiao Huajun and Wang Linhai, security guards from Ji ‘an, Jiangxi Province, were very happy to receive the red seal from the managers. Xiao Huajun said that he hasn’t received lucky money for many years, and this letter made him seem to have returned to his childhood.
"Before the Chinese New Year, the company cancelled all kinds of dinners, but this meal for left-behind workers must not be saved." Hu Yangping, chairman of the labor union of China Construction Railway Rail Transit Company, said that the company’s development today was created by workers with their hands.
