BEIJING — Vice-Premier Wang Yang on April 1 urged full implementation of the country’s grand strategy to reduce poverty.
Poverty reduction efforts should be more targeted and precise, Wang said when chairing a meeting on poverty relief, calling for tighter supervision of poverty relief efforts.
China has set 2020 as the target year to complete building a “moderately prosperous society” in all aspects, and the hardest part is lifting all poor rural population out of poverty.
