Achievements in poverty alleviation work by China's central government departments were exhibited at the National Agriculture Exhibition Center in Beijing from October 10-13.
Themed “Resolutely Winning the Battle of Poverty Alleviation, Greeting the 19th CPC National Congress”, the exhibition displayed the historical background, work practices and typical character of China's central government departments’ poverty alleviation work, especially their work results since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in 2012.
Vice President and Member of the Party Leadership Group of China Post Group Li Pizheng attended the opening ceremony.
State Councilor and Secretary General of the State Council Yang Jing delivered a speech at the event.
“China's State organs’ poverty alleviation work has achieved remarkable results since
the 18th CPC National Congress. Some 5.6 million people have been lifted from poverty since 2014. Facing the new situation and tasks, China's State organs and units should rally closely around the CPC Central Committee, constantly improve the institutional mechanisms in poverty alleviation work, solve the practical problems of people in financial difficulties, win the battle of poverty alleviation and greet the 19th CPC National Congress,” Yang said.
As an important part of the poverty alleviation cause with characteristics, 803 leaders of 89 China's central government departments and units carried out investigations in 173 anti-poverty counties.
More than 1,500 cadres and first secretaries of villages were dispatched to the counties along with an investment of 55.033 billion yuan (U.S.$ 8.34 billion), all of which made due contributions in anti-poverty counties.
In accordance with the unified deployment of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council, integrated China Post enterprise resources in the past five years have focused on poverty alleviation in education, e-commerce, finance, insurance, technology and infrastructure. They dispatched cadres in Shangzhou District and Luonan County in northwest China's Shaanxi Province and invested 51.32 million yuan (US$ 7.78 million), both of which comprehensively promoted the poverty alleviation work to a new level.
Poverty alleviation work that targets old revolutionary base areas, ethnic regions, border areas and poverty-stricken areas has made great progress since it was started in 1986.
Future tasks are to focus on ensuring adequate food and clothing for people in need and helping them out of poverty by improving their capabilities for development on their own.
