    At the outset of China’s mission to eradicate poverty in 2013, there were 832 counties classified by the government as poverty-stricken. After years of unremitting endeavors, China’s fight against extreme poverty paid off. In November 2020, one month ahead of schedule, the country achieved the feat of delisting all the poverty-stricken counties. How did China make it happen? CGTN explores stats in a way that reveals the country’s poverty alleviation campaign, a story of struggle and success, via mapping out the trajectory of regional and urban-rural income discrepancies nationwide.
