Targeted Approach to Poverty Alleviation
China Economic Weekly December 3
During the past 40 years, China has helped over 700 million people out of poverty, which accounts for 70 percent of all people lifted out of poverty worldwide. By the end of 2015, Chinese President Xi Jinping put forward to eliminate poverty in China by 2020 - 10 years ahead of the target of ending poverty in all its forms by 2030 set by the United Nations. The success of Chinese poverty alleviation serves as a valuable experience for the whole world.
Besides personalized antipoverty plans for each person, the nation’s targeted poverty alleviation efforts also include various arrangements to create work opportunities and give people job training, so that the anti-poverty mode can remain sustainable.
