Vice Pre­mier Wang Calls for Sense of Mis­sion in Poverty Re­duc­tion

Fiji Sun - - China News -

Chi­nese Vice Pre­mier Wang Yang on Mon­day un­der­lined the im­por­tance of ap­ply­ing a sense of mis­sion in poverty re­duc­tion to meet the tar­get.

Pre­sid­ing over a meet­ing of the State Coun­cil lead­ing group on poverty re­lief, Mr Wang, who is also the head of the group, urged au­thor­i­ties to im­ple­ment the cen­tral lead­er­ship’s in­struc­tions through en­hanc­ing a sense of mis­sion and cri­sis aware­ness, and tar­get­ing prob­lems to ful­fill the Party’s promise to the Chi­nese peo­ple and the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity.

Train­ing of lo­cal au­thor­i­ties in charge of poverty re­duc­tion should be stepped up, Mr Wang said, stress­ing the im­por­tance of car­ry­ing out re­search and in­ves­ti­ga­tion, and avert­ing for­mal­ism.

China has set 2020 as the tar­get to com­plete the build­ing of a “mod­er­ately pros­per­ous so­ci­ety,” which re­quires the erad­i­ca­tion of poverty.

To achieve that tar­get, China needs to lift more than 10 mil­lion peo­ple out of poverty ev­ery year, mean­ing nearly one mil­lion peo­ple per month or 20 peo­ple per minute.
