"There are still a great number of people living under the poverty line and sometimes some people fall back into poverty again after being lifted out," he said. "The poverty reduction task is very arduous, especially in mountainous regions where poverty-stricken counties are concentrated."

The 11 regions include the Liupan Mountains in the Ningxia Hui autonomous region, the Wuling Mountains at the junction of Guizhou, Chongqing, Hubei and Hunan, and the Qinling-Bashan mountains.

"We will make those regions the major focus for poverty alleviation efforts and we will continue to boost their industrialization, informatization, urbanization and agricultural modernization," said Fan.

Fan said both central and provincial-level budgets will increase input into poverty-stricken areas and the government will give priority to those areas when arranging key State-level projects and industrial development.

Efforts will be made to help those areas fully use their resources and develop industries to increase farmers' income, he said. The government will also strive to improve infrastructure, a minimum living subsidy mechanism, education, healthcare and water safety in poor areas.
