Xi's Jinzhai visit to eradicate poverty [Comics drawn by Chi Ying]

On April 24, President Xi Jinping paid a visit to Jinzhai County in Dabie Mountains, Anhui Province, a key target for China's poverty alleviation campaign. Xi spoke with local leaders and farmers.

He stressed stable poverty alleviation measures with perseverance. Hard-working laborers deserve a better life. Eradicating poverty can bring about national dignity too.

Xi shows care for the living conditions of the people in need and has paid several visits to poverty-stricken areas. He urged governments at all levels to carry out more targeted and precise measures to ensure the poor people in rural areas have access to food, clothes, basic education, medical care, and safe home. China has vowed to lift all of its people out of poverty by 2020, when each citizen should benefit from a comprehensive well-off society.

More than 55 million rural Chinese are living in poverty. They are struggling with high development costs, especially those residing in frontier areas and ethnic areas. To avoid a poverty-returning phenomenon is a formidable goal.

We need to strengthen policy support and take innovative poverty alleviation approaches, such as upgrading public services, helping those who are poor of illnesses in order to create a happier China.
