July 7, 2017 -- The Press Conference on Internet Plus Social Poverty Relief was held by the State Council Information Office on Wednesday morning.

From 2013 to the end of 2016, China has helped more than 100 million people shake off the poverty every year. It is determined to completely win the battle against poverty eradication by the end of 2020.

“A ledger management system of targeted poverty relief action has been established during the Internet Plus Social Poverty Relief,” said Hong Tianyun, deputy-director of the State Council Leading Group Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development.

So far, 21 thousand poverty-stricken villages have been under the financial aid of 26.5 thousand enterprises, said Hong.
