The incidence of poverty in Guizhou has dropped from 20.6% to 4.3%
The reporter learned from the press conference of the sixth Plenary session of the 12th Guizhou Provincial CPC Committee: the number of poor people in Guizhou Province decreased from 7.46 million in 2013 to 1.55 million in 2018, and the incidence of poverty dropped from 20.6 percent to 4.3 percent.
At present, the fight against poverty has entered a critical stage. Guizhou strictly implements the standards and procedures for the withdrawal of poor counties, poor villages, and the poor, and puts an end to the "false" way out of poverty, the "accounting type" to get rid of poverty, the "index type" to get rid of poverty, and the "wandering type" to get rid of poverty, and firmly adhere to the bottom line of the quality of getting rid of poverty. This year, the province will reduce the number of poor people by more than 1.4 million, and 24 poor counties will be lifted out of poverty. In the first half of next year, all the remaining poor people and the remaining deep poverty counties have reached the conditions for lifting off poverty, and the remaining 150000 or so poor people have been lifted out of poverty, and nine deep poverty counties have been lifted out of poverty.
In addition, Guizhou has worked hard to fight four tough battles: infrastructure, relocation, industrial poverty alleviation, and education and medical security, and make every effort to promote the rural industrial revolution. (reporter Su Bin)
