Dec. 27, 2018 -- Jisong Village of Cona County is more than 4,500 meters above sea level. With bad environment, frequent frost damage, poor living conditions and lack of public facilities, the villagers have a very difficult life.

In June last year, after deeply investigating Jisong Village, the first phase of Jisong Village's high-altitude ecological relocation project was decided to be launched by implementing measures such as appropriate separation of production and living areas, special feeding of livestock in pastoral areas and labor liberation into the tertiary industry.
With a total investment of 72.8 million yuan, the project aims to build a modern border village of with convenient transportation, good environment and complete facilities, so that the villagers of Jisong Village can truly lift themselves out of poverty and live and work in peace and contentment. The relocation site is located near the Cona County.
After more than a year of construction, all houses, commercial streets, village service centers, cultural and sports squares and roads have been completed before the beginning of winter this year. This is the sixth border well-off village in Cona County, and the first high-altitude ecological relocation and resettlement site in the county. The new village is not only spacious, comfortable, and equipped with complete facilities, but also laid with geothermal heating facilities for each household. Villagers no longer have to endure the pain of cold winter, living conditions have achieved a qualitative leap.
