China’s last lap in eradicating poverty by 2020

This year mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China and the 70th anniversary of China-Africa diplomatic relations. It seems China is in the year of diverse activities, but poverty eradication is clearly the top priority as the 2020 deadline of alleviating poverty is approaching. Notably, poverty eradication goals, among other rural development aims, are solemn promises made by the Chinese leadership to Chinese people, especially rural people. Consistent with China’s meteoric economic transformation, China has made remarkable headway in alleviating poverty over the past four decades.
