On January 13, CECEP held a work conference on consolidating and expanding the achievements in poverty alleviation and promoting rural vitalization in 2021. Chairman Song Xin reviewed the group’s work on poverty relief from 2016 to 2020, especially targeted poverty alleviation work in 2020, deployed the key tasks of 2021 concerning consolidation of poverty alleviation outcomes and promotion of rural vitalization, and released the “CECEP Report on Targeted Poverty Alleviation 2016-2020.”
Song noted that CECEP’s continuous efforts in promoting targeted poverty alleviation in recent years have helped Fuchuan, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, and Songxian, Henan Province, declare poverty-free in April 2019 and February 2020, respectively. As of November 2020, all the impoverished people in the two counties had come out of poverty.
To consolidate and expand the achievements of poverty alleviation and explore a path of rural vitalization, Song said, CECEP should actively practice Chinese President Xi Jinping’s thought on ecological civilization and the concept that “lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets,” give full play to its expertise and strength to consolidate poverty relief outcomes through industrial development, consumption and education, and promote rural vitalization to make its due contribution to the construction of ecological civilization and the building of a beautiful China.
