Xinhua, August 3, 2017 Adjust font size:

Farmers take part in a nursery nurse training in Dawang Town of Anxin County in Xiongan New Area, north China's Hebei Province, August 1, 2017. China announced plans to establish Xiongan New Area in April as part of measures to integrate Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei development and cure "urban ills" such as traffic congestion and air pollution in the capital. The government provided farmers there with free training to help them adapting to the urban life. By August 1, more than 2000 farmers were trained, and by the end of 2017, 10,000 farmers will get training regarding employment and business startup. (Xinhua/Jin Liwang)
