China’s positive energy (III): From 'Chinese dreams' to 'Chinese contributions' (2)

(People's Daily Online)

08:35, November 12, 2012

China’s economic development has yielded tangible fruits. Over the past decade, China has lifted more people out of absolute poverty than ever before and more than any other country has done, laying a solid foundation for realization of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.

Hu attributes China’s impressive achievement in poverty reduction to the Chinese government’s great attention to the people’s livelihood.

More than 10 years ago, the CPC Central Committee and State Council developed a plan for devoting the country’s human, financial, and material resources to poverty elimination from 2001 to 2010.

The Chinese government issued the Guidelines for Development-oriented Poverty Reduction in Rural China (2011-2020) last year, setting a goal of providing adequate food and clothing to poverty-stricken people and ensuring their access to compulsory education, basic medical services and housing by 2020. The growth rate of poor rural residents’ per capita net income is above the national average, and major indicators for basic public services in poverty-stricken places are close to the national average.

Hu said that previously, no country with a high poverty rate and large population below the poverty line had reduced poverty sharply in a relatively short period. China is the first to have achieved that, and has lifted more people out of poverty than any other country.
