LHASA -- A total of 202 projects aimed at helping lift southwest China's Tibet autonomous region out of poverty were signed Monday at a poverty alleviation meeting.

The projects, with an estimated investment of 21.5 billion yuan (about $3.1 billion), cover a wide range of fields, including education, healthcare, relocation and employment and science and technology.

Since 2017, 25 such projects have been implemented, according to the local poverty alleviation authorities.

Authorities said that 17 provinces and cities, 16 centrally-administered state-owned enterprises and invited private enterprises have joined in the projects for 2019.

The regional government vowed to lift 150,000 people out of poverty and eradicate absolute poverty this year.
