This year's targets in the battle against poverty were a topic of discussion for Liu Yongfu, the head of the Poverty Alleviation and Development Office of the State Council during a news conference on Thursday on the sidelines of the 13th National People's Congress.

Over the past six years, China's government has lifted more than 80 million rural people out of poverty. The number of rural poor in China had fallen from 98.99 million at the end of 2012 to 16.6 million at the end of last year.

During the news conference, Liu Yongfu emphasized the benefits of e-commerce to poverty reduction work, as it allows residents in remote areas to sell local products to a large market.

Speaking about the issue of corruption and graft in poverty alleviation programs, Liu Yongfu said that any improper behavior will be severely dealt with by the government.

We have noticed that China government has made great effort to raise the poor from poverty specially those in the remote mountain areas! My daughter-in-law was born in a backward hill-region who told me: “I feel surprised for new changes taken place in hometown including new wide high way built in the past few years after my marriage! Now the local special agricultural products can easily transformed out for high price to increase parents' income!”
This shows China has got the early state of communism! (At least in our mind!)
Childish pure  mindset can simplify your life which let you live in a light way! Without man-made troubles you will work in high efficiency!

China government invests mega amount to eradicate poverty.

Somehow and somewhere, people did moved into new homes but their so called promised free electrical power and water for three years just evaporated over less than half a year!

Without land, the poor could not plant. Possible source of social distability has been activated.

BEWARE!
