April 15,2019   By:Xinhua
April 15,2019-- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has called for concrete actions to strengthen support to people relocated amid the country's efforts to win the battle against poverty.
 
Li, who is also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the requirements in his instruction on the follow-up work of alleviating poverty through relocation.
 
Government departments should learn about relocated people's expectations, coordinate all kinds of poverty alleviation funds and resources, strengthen follow-up support for them, push forward the development of industries and facilitate employment, so as to significantly improve their sense of fulfillment and security.
 
Government departments should ensure the impoverished people can be relocated, are willing to live in new homes and are able to shake off poverty, making sure that the project of alleviating poverty through relocation could stand the test of history and the people, Li said.
 
A national meeting on offering follow-up support for poverty relief through relocation was held in Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture of Guizhou Province on Thursday and Friday.
 
Hu Chunhua, a member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and head of the State Council Leading Group of Poverty Alleviation and Development, attended the meeting, and called for tailored support for different types of relocation and different areas.
 
"We must ensure the continuity of support policies and earnestly safeguard the reasonable rights and interests of the relocated people," Hu said.
