China has been sharing experience on poverty eradication with the world and contributing to global endeavor in this regard.
Over the past 40 years or so after China’s reform and opening up began, according to World Bank statistics, 800 million Chinese were lifted out of poverty.
China’s visions on poverty alleviation, including “targeted poverty reduction” and “tailoring policies to local conditions”, are drawing more and more attention from the international community.
China has recently put together a selection of poverty reduction cases in the form of a book titled Eradication of Poverty: China’s Practices to share our experience and practice.
China is taking concrete actions to support poverty eradication worldwide. While making efforts in our own country, we have also been helping developing countries to the best of our ability.
China has been creating more synergies between the BRI cooperation and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. According to a World Bank report, BRI projects could help lift 7.6 million people out of extreme poverty and 32 million people from moderate poverty.
Through bilateral and multilateral channels, we are helping developing countries with their capacity building, which also contributes to poverty eradication cooperation worldwide.
“The world will be a better place only when everyone is better off.” China will continue contributing our strength to international cooperation on poverty alleviation.”
