Strolling around Anren community, you may want to settle down right then and there.

It has beautiful surroundings with clear water, lush mountains and chirping birds, locally iconic white-wall-and-black-tile houses, and all life's conveniences for children, seniors and everyone in between.

The community in Jiande city of East China's Zhejiang province was established in June 2021, about one month after the province was designated by the central authorities as a demonstration zone for common prosperity.

It offers a vivid example of what China is aiming for after eradicating absolute poverty.
