Bazhong is the center of the Sichuan-Shaanxi revolutionary base area in China with rich red tourism resources. Due to its location in the Daba Mountains, traffic bottlenecks have restricted the development of Bazhong,
In order to realize the solemn promise that all rural poor population will be alleviated from poverty by 2020, in recent years, the poverty-alleviation personnel of China Railway Chengdu Group Co., Ltd. have made substantial contributions in Pingchang County, deep in Daba Mountains, exerting their own advantages and leading the people in the old revolutionary base areas to ride the "express train" for getting rid of poverty and becoming better off.
Pingchang County, a state poverty county, is located in the northeast of Sichuan Province and at the southern foot of the Micang Mountain of Daba Mountains. Cai Chunsheng, Deputy Secretary of the CPC Committee in Pingchang County, was Deputy Secretary of the CPC Committee in Emei Train Operation Depot and Secretary of Discipline Inspection Committee before his new appointment.
The railway department has made great contributions to facilitating the travel of the people in the old revolutionary base areas. At the beginning of 2016, Bazhong-Dazhou Railway was put into operation, and Pingchang Station then initiated passenger service. The railway connected to Chongqing, Chengdu, Shenzhen, Guangzhou and other places, which satisfied the travel demands of local migrant workers and outside tourists. On October 23, 2018, the freight service on this railway was established, creating a new logistics corridor for Pingchang, enhancing the market competitiveness of local enterprises and invigorating the economic development of the county.
According to Cai Chunsheng, the railway's port advantages, market advantages and other advantages are combined with the advantages of local resources, and the active promotion and coordination are strengthened. Besides purchasing Pingchang’s high-quality tea and agricultural products, the railway life service company also introduces customers who cooperate with the railway department to Pingchang. Pingchang's native products are bought by thousands of families through "trains, stations and Internet". At Chengdudong Railway Station, such products as "He Dama" bean paste, dried fish and tea from Pingchang County are prominently placed at the poverty-alleviation shop. Relying on the publicity advantages of the railway department, the supply now falls short of demand.
