In April 2017, China announced a plan to establish the Xiong'an New Area, which spans the Rongcheng, Anxin and Xiongxian counties, as well as some adjacent areas in north China's Hebei Province.

The new area aims to relieve Beijing of non-essential functions related to its status as the nation's capital, while also advancing the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.

The country has also vowed to build Xiong'an, dubbed the "city of the future," into an innovative, green, smart and world-class city with blue skies, fresh air and clean water, in line with the country's high-quality development path. (Xinhua/Mu Yu)

Namgyal plays the accordion with his granddaughter aside at his home in Doilungdeqen District of Lhasa, southwest China's Xizang Autonomous Region, March 13, 2024.

Born in 1945, Namgyal grew up in what is now Doilungdeqen District in Lhasa.

Namgyal recalled that his worst memory was the rain, which would seep through the leaky roof and wet his only suit of clothing, leaving him to continue working for the serf owner the next day in soaked clothes.

After the democratic reform in 1959, life of Namgyal and his family totally changed. The family of four received dwellings, livestock and farmland. Namgyal learned to play the accordion and became a member of the Doilungdeqen art troupe. He later had the opportunities to perform in Beijing and many other cities in China.

The four children of Namgyal earned successful careers and all of his eight grandchildren received good education and made their ways into universities.

"I couldn't imagine a better life," Namgyal said. (Xinhua/Jigme Dorje)
