Report to focus on Guizhou’s new anti-poverty campaign
The Beijing International Wedding Expo will be held on Saturday and Sunday at the China National Convention Center. About 2,000 exhibitors will take part in the show, which will feature all things wedding — from dress and jewelry to photography and event planning. Products and services such as furniture and car rentals will also be on offer at the show. Admission fee is 25 yuan ($3.60).
Lequn is a remote and poor village in Gui zhou province. Nearly 10 percent of Lequn’s 4,000 residents are disabled — far higher than China national disability rate 6.5 percent. With an annual income less than 4,000 yuan, most people there live below the poverty line. Adopting an innovative “company+farmers+base” model, the province has launched a new anti-poverty campaign. Under the plan, farmers become shareholders of a company with land investment. Next week, China Daily will release an in-depth report on the program.
