An online conference on ASEAN media views of China's poverty alleviation was held on Monday, where media professionals and experts from China and ASEAN countries explored China's poverty alleviation program and discussed future cooperation.

Since reform and opening-up began, China has carried out large-scale poverty alleviation, embarking on the most spectacular poverty reduction campaign in human history.

After seven years of targeted poverty alleviation, the number of poverty-stricken counties in China dropped from 832 to 52 as of the end of 2019.

The poverty-stricken population dropped from 98.99 million at the end of 2012 to 5.51 million at the end of 2019. The poverty rate dropped from 10.2 percent in 2012 to 0.6 percent. Region-wide poverty has been basically resolved.
