This poster combines two ideas: the idealization of the Daqing industrial model and the call for the unification of all Chinese nationalities (note the romanization in Northwestern minority script). In the late 1970s, a number of posters were produced to highlight the ways in which minorities should strive with the Han Chinese to achieve economic development and modernization. In contrast, earlier posters often depicted the Han Chinese as benefactors, guiding and advising the minorities.
