"China's poverty alleviation is the best story to undermine biases and disrupt stereotypes about China," said Robert Lawrence Kuhn.

The chairman of The Kuhn Foundation and a winner of the China Reform Friendship Medal made the remarks on Thursday at the Vision China event hosted by China Daily.

Having lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty, China's poverty alleviation has been an "epic achievement" and the leadership and organizational capacity of the Communist Party of China has played a key role during the process, he said.

"Just as future historians may well look upon China's fight against the coronavirus as a turning point in worldwide efforts to contain outbreaks of novel diseases, future historians may well recognize China's fight against poverty as a turning point in worldwide efforts to eradicate extreme poverty."
