In the last episode of the Rural China series, China Daily reporter D J Clark visits villagers in Qinghai province to find out how the recently announced Chinese rural development policy, that will guide developments for the next ten years, meets the needs of some of China's poorest communities.

The village of Duowa sits on the slopes of a deep dusty gorge. Here the promised developments of a new road, access to new schools in the county town, health insurance, pensions, tap water in every home and support for new agricultural technologies have all been met but not all are without controversy as D J Clark discovers.
