(China Plus) China’s President Xi Jinping said on Thursday that the country wouldn’t relent in its fight against poverty until it meets its goal of eradicating extreme poverty by 2020.

"There should be no retreat until a complete victory is won," President Xi told a panel discussion with deputies from Gansu Province at the second session of the 13th National People's Congress, China's national legislature.

In recent years, the number of people living in extreme poverty in Gansu Province has more than halved, from 2.56 million in 2016 down to around one million today.
