From BBC:
Poor rural villages show China's economic dilemma
…………….” Few foreign visitors travelling to Beijing, Shanghai or Guangzhou fail to be impressed by the country's recent achievements.
But there is another side of China that is less visible - the poor rural areas that suggest growth has been uneven, or worse, has left some behind.
China has the world's second-biggest economy but, because of its 1.3bn people, it has a per-capita income on a par with countries such as Tunisia and Angola.
Just three hours drive from Beijing is the village of Yihezhuang - where nearly 300 people have an average income of less than 1,000 yuan ($157, £101) a year.”……………………………………
……………..”There is just a basic track running about 7km (4 miles) from the main road to the village. Some homes can be reached only on foot.”……………………………………………………………
…………………………………………….”The village was poor then and there is not much to suggest it has benefited from China's rapid economic growth over the last few decades”
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

BEIJING - The Chinese government should increase financial support to enable about 5.9 million children aged from 3 to 5 in West China's rural areas to receive early childhood education, argued experts.

Studies show kids in China's rural west lag behind their urban counterparts in language skills and social networking.

An estimated 8.5 million children aged from 3 to 5 live in villages in West China, and only 30 percent of them get admitted to kindergartens, according to statistics from the China Development Research Foundation.........

Guizhou to relocate 1.5m living in poverty
Updated: 2012-02-13 21:34
By Wang Huazhong and Yang Jun (chinadaily.com.cn)GUIYANG/BEIJING - The Government of Southwest China's Guizhou province is planning to spend 18 billion yuan ($2.85 billion) to relocate 1.5 million people living in mountainous regions in a bid to end chronic poverty there.

Ethnic minorities account for about 39 percent of the province's population, and the province is eight years behind the national average development level, according to official statistics.

Zhao Kezhi, governor of Guizhou, on Monday said in a news conference in Beijing that the local government has initiated a pilot relocation project for the first batch of 100,000 people this year.

"In Guizhou, 1.5 million people live in mountains that barely provide the conditions for sustaining life," said Zhao.

Explaining the necessity of the plan, Zhao said "even if we build roads to reach them, provide drinking water to them and work to alleviate poverty there for another 50 years, the problem might not be addressed, in my opinion."

He said the relocation plan would take nine years to complete. In order to address complications that will arise when moving farmers from mountains into townships, the project will require massive funding as well as supportive policies that boost jobs.

Northwest China's Qinghai Province will resettle 26,000 residents from poor areas of the province this year, local authorities said Tuesday.

A fund of 430 million yuan (68 million U.S. dollars), 260 million more than the amount last year, will be spent on their resettlement, said Losum Dawa, chief of the provincial poverty alleviation bureau.

These people, from 6,000 households of farmers and herdsmen, will be relocated from inhospitable regions with scarce resources.

The local government will use the funds on the housing, water, electricity, telecommunications, education and sanitation for the people, as well as job training, to ensure their well being after relocation, said Losum Dawa.

Qinghai is located east of the world's highest and largest plateau, the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, or "the Roof of the World," with its population made up of mostly of Han and Tibetan ethnic groups.
