"What is the name of the ham from your village?" "What is your wine called?"  President Xi Jinping asked.


"It's called Yanbo," answered Yu Liufen, a delegate to the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) from Pan County.


"Is it liquor?  And what the price is?" President Xi continued.


"Yes, it is liquor. Our price is affordable for everyone."  Yu Liufen said.


"I want to know the price." President Xi clarified.


"Only 99 yuan (15 US dollars)," said Yu.


"That's not cheap. It doesn't  have to be expensive to sell. It may not sell well if it's too costly.


"Thanks for your guidance, President Xi, we'll take your advice.”


"This is a matter of the market. You can't make it 30 yuan (4.5 US dollars) now just because I ask. You should price it according to the market.” Xi replied.


Pan County is a small county in southwest China's Guizhou Province. Because of the its remote location surrounded by mountains, the area is relatively underdeveloped, and the lives of the residents in the county are also difficult. 


On the morning of October 19th, President Xi met with the delegation from Guizhou Province to discuss the report to the 19th CPC National Congress.


During the meeting, President Xi asked the delegates to talk about the development of their hometowns and the people's hopes for their lives. The meeting lasted almost three hours. President Xi listened attentively and had an in-depth discussion with them.     


Yu Liufen told President Xi that 10 years ago, it took four days to travel from Beijing to her village. Then in 2014, the Yuezhao Airport in Liupanshui City  was built, latter in 2015, the Pan City was connected by highways and high-speed railway this year, now the trip takes only eight or nine hours.  


In 2014, President Xi came to Huamao Village in Guizhou Province to visit the impoverished villagers and the villagers have missed him ever since. When they heard there're delegates coming to Beijing to attend the Party's national congress,  they prepared a recent photo of the village for President Xi.


President Xi received the photo, and he complimented while having a look at it, "This looks like a painting, it is so beautiful!” 


On June 16th, 2015, when President Xi visited the village, he said, "to judge the Party's policy is good or not, we should see how the villagers react to it."
