Tourism has become a major tool for poverty reduction, with rural tourism lifting tens of millions of people out of poverty.

On Aug 18, the CNTA and the State Council Leading Group Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development held a national-level meeting on rural tourism to discuss ways of reducing poverty through tourism, in Huangshan, Anhui province. There, it was proposed to lift 17 percent of the total impoverished population (about 12 million) out of poverty through rural tourism, so as to fully realize the strategic role of rural tourism.
