Hi! Welcome to “About China”!
In today’s program, we will talk about ” Poverty Relief”.
Chinese President Xi Jinping said that the country should form a poverty relief mechanism with long-lasting effects and win the battle of poverty relief during a panel discussion with national lawmakers from southwestern China's Sichuan Province at the ongoing annual session of the National People's Congress (NPC) on March 8, 2017.
It is the Party's solemn pledge to help all impoverished rural population out of poverty under the current standard and delist all poor counties by 2020, Xi said.
The nearer toward the deadline, the more difficult the campaign to eradicate poverty will be. That requires the country to clarify the responsibilities, take precise measures and make meticulous efforts, Xi said.
E.g.: The poverty-relief program aims to lift the over 70 million poor people in China out of the poverty.
