( 2 images )BEIJING (Reuters) - China has removed the last remaining counties from a list of poor regions, in what officials described as achieving President Xi Jinping’s longstanding political goal of eliminating extreme poverty by the end of this year.
The milestone was achieved by lifting 93 million people out of poverty since 2013, China’s government said. Foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told a press briefing on Tuesday that China was prepared to share its experience with other developing countries.
China sets its own national standard of extreme poverty, based on a per capita income threshold of 4,000 yuan per year, or around $1.52 per day, and other factors such as access to basic healthcare and education. That compares with a threshold of $1.90 per day set by the World Bank to measure extreme poverty globally. headtopics.com
On Monday afternoon, officials in one of China’s poorest provinces, Guizhou, announced that the last nine remaining counties had been removed from the nation’s list of poor regions. The list, drawn up in 2014, initially identified 832 counties as extremely poor.
Guizhou said average per capita annual income in the counties had risen to 11,487 yuan. State media said third-party auditors had visited the nine counties to conduct final surveys this month.Guizhou was the last province to report its latest surveys, after other provinces and regions including Xinjiang, Guangxi, Ningxia Yunnan, Sichuan and Gansu removed their final counties from the list earlier this month.

Tens of thousands protest across Russia in support of poisoned Putin critic Navalny
Protests broke out all over Russia in support of opposition leader Alexey Navalny, who was jailed after his return to Moscow following his poisoning.
China silently accomplished the small step of eradicating extreme poverty in a country of 1.4 billion people, with Covid-19 completely under control at the same time and a positive expectation of 2020 GDP. While 99% the western criticizers finished NONE of the three. Cheers. How much longer would it take China to achieve the higher WorldBank threshold of $1.90 per day?
If you set the bar low enough, you can succeed 😅 “Here put these jeans and sneakers on and pretend to be happy.” great It's admirable that they want to raise the national average, county by county, but the article is too sparse on details to really explain how they really intend to do that, or examples of the impact on individual lives.
China, did you bury all the poor? Unorthodox solution. Yea.. They shot all the poorest Last I checked 'extreme poverty' is a problem not dealt with in China, by China. They provide those people with seeds, fields and piglets, and if they really don’t have the ability to work, they’ll give money directly.Almost every government worker has his own help target. It's a hard work, one of my friend have to go to the country every weekend.
what did China kill them? It's telling that as China is eliminating poverty, homelessness, inequality, and financial desperation is increasing in the U.S. eradicate deez nuts Yeah, I don't think so. If the Chinese told me the sun was hot, I'd have to double check to verify. eradication of poverty or simply poor people. Not being cynical, just asking
尖閣に、係留させてみては？英国の空母の寄港地も尖閣に。 Fake 😷 By harvesting their organs and eliminating the donors. Good move China 'To become a better you, concentrate on the work at hand at the moment. Do it and do it well.' Give credits where it is due, Well Done and Congratulations China in achievement Eradication of Extreme Poverty.
I'll take 'Headlines That No One Believes' for $100, Alex. China made an investment in the Biden Crime Family. Now it expects a return on that investment. Beware its counties not countries...😀😀 China is the richest country on earth, all other countries are poor shitholes! 😄😁😄 Let the world media to roam in their country, within a month they'll tear down china to rock bottom. 👽👽
Righttttt then. Who would believe China after all ? Seguro..... y si no los ametrallamos a los que quedan... Wonder if that includes the DPRK ? I remember during cultural revolution they say they will 'eliminate the small number of bad influence' and there are again and again more bad influence. 'You are not poor, do you think the state is incompetent to provide for you?' 'You are happy, not?'
China will fix this problem by getting ‘rid’ of the poor. It has a quick fix solution for every problem. Good news. Free Market Capitalism fails on every level. Controlled market Communism is far superior Ok, whatever chiNa says ....! We may debate every else about China but, they do what they say. No lip service
