    Since 2016, local government in Gonpo Gyamda town of Tibet's Nyingchi has taken targeted measures in poverty alleviation work. The infrastructures, such as roads, houses and solar power lamps, were constructed and new industries were introduced in the town, which changed the village dramatically.


    In recent years, Gonpo Gyamda town has put more emphasis on "pulu" (a kind of richly textured cloth) garment processing industry. In order to provide free handicraft training for people of poverty-stricken households, it also established Lhalong Pulu Weaving Cooperative, one of poverty alleviation projects of Gonpo Gyamda.


    With a history of more than two thousand years, "pulu", or Tibetan woolen fabrics, are as important and popular among Tibetans as cotton clothes are to inland Chinese. Being a traditional necessity of Tibetan people, pulu enjoys a high place in Tibetans' mind.
