Vice-premier calls for sense of mission in poverty reduction

BEIJING - Vice-Premier Wang Yang Monday underlined the importance of applying a sense of mission in poverty reduction to meet the target.

Presiding over a meeting of the State Council leading group on poverty relief, Wang, also head of the group, urged authorities to implement the central leadership's instructions through enhancing a sense of mission and crisis awareness, and targeting problems to fulfill the Party's promise to the Chinese people and the international community.

Training of local authorities in charge of poverty reduction should be stepped up, Wang said, stressing the importance of carrying out research and investigation, and averting formalism.

China has set 2020 as the target to complete the building of a "moderately prosperous society," which requires the eradication of poverty.

To achieve that target, China needs to lift more than 10 million people out of poverty every year, meaning nearly one million people per month or 20 people per minute.
