Chinese village cheers Xi's climb to power

Next president of China honed leadership skills as governor and party head in rural Zhejiang province.

    News of Xi Jinping's new role has been well-received, notably in particular by one small village in eastern China.
     
    Xi visited the village of Xiajiang four times when he was governor of Zhejiang province. He traveled there to monitor the community's progress as the coastal regions enjoyed a growth spurt.

    Villagers said they liked Xi for his mild temper and for his concern for the poorest Chinese families.
