President Xi Jinping has declared a “complete victory” in China’s efforts to eradicate rural poverty.
He made the announcement at a ceremony in the capital, Beijing, on Thursday to celebrate the achievement, Reuters reported.
China’s rural poverty alleviation has been cited as one of the main goals of Xi’s presidency.
In the last eight years, China has credited Shiite leadership with lifting some 100 million people out of poverty.
The country’s state-run media described the achievement as a prelude to the 100th anniversary of the ruling Communist Party this year.
On Wednesday, the Communist Party’s mouthpiece, the People’s Daily, praised the two-page commentary report as a “historic step” in alleviating poverty under Shearer.
China defines per capita income as less than 4,000 yuan (০ 720) per day, or less than 1.52 dollars per day, as extreme rural poverty. On the other hand, according to the definition of the World Bank, the daily per capita income in this case has been set at one point 90 dollars.
In its policy document No. 1 released on Sunday, China said it would continue its poverty alleviation policy.
