How Xi Jinping leads China to zero poverty

CGTN published this video item, entitled “How Xi Jinping leads China to zero poverty” – below is their description.

For more:

In 2012, 98.99 million Chinese were living below the national poverty line. President Xi Jinping pledged that all rural poor should shake off poverty to usher in a prosperous society in all respects when the Party celebrates its centenary in 2021.

To deliver on that promise, Xi took charge, drew plans, convened conference after conference, and visited all 14 impoverished areas across the country. On November 3, 2013, during his visit to Shibadong Village in central China’s Hunan Province, he proposed the idea of “targeted poverty alleviation.”

The successful rollout of the “targeted poverty alleviation” strategy has lifted China’s 832 impoverished counties, including the 14 areas, out of absolute poverty. China has achieved the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development poverty reduction target 10 years ahead of schedule. #XiJinping #zeropoverty
