March 14, 2017 -- Food and clothing shortages must be solved to alleviate poverty, a Chinese official pledged recently, in China’s latest vow to get tough in war on poverty.
To make sure its poverty alleviation policies are effective, China has promised the strictest assessments as well as a strict cap on the number of impoverished people.
Besides food and clothing, basic education, medical care and housing security must be guaranteed, Liu Yongfu, director of the State Council Leading Group Office on Poverty Alleviation and Development, said at a media briefing on the sidelines of the NPC session in Beijing.
China’s 2017 government work report requires local authorities to effectively implement an accountability system and apply the strictest assessment for poverty alleviation. In the report, the Chinese government also promises stern punishments against deception, falsification, and manipulation of statistics, so as to ensure the policies can really benefit the public and withstand the test of history.
