Live: How do Chinese people thrive in the face of difficulties? 中国人的艰苦奋斗精神是怎样炼成的 4.5

Chinese people have proven that they thrive in the face of hardships, whether geographical or otherwise. In central China's Henan Province, villagers conquered Mother Nature to dig the Red Flag Canal, a 1,500-km canal running between the steep crags of Taihang Mountains. The ingenuity of locals in the country's southwest also led them to build a 7.3-km road along dangerous cliffs. And from obstacles in the mountains to barriers in water, China's swimming team has built a reputation for itself on the global stage, despite starting from scratch. CGTN shows you how Chinese people take on challenges head on. #PanoramicChina #70YearsThriving

That villagers from early footage are amazing. Never see in the modern world have such motivation. If Africa, S.America, and S.Asia doing same, prosperity for sure to come.

The cultures and traditions of China have been shaped and guided by teachings of Buddha, Confucius, Lao Tzu and many sages during ancient times, Chinese literature and civilisation has been evolving for thousands of years, shaped by natural disasters, turmoils, tyranny, raging warlords and Dynasty, but patriotism is their main forces to do well, no country, means, no family and no self.
