Multinationals have role to play in poverty alleviation, rural revitalization
August 20, 2021
China has successfully alleviated poverty, and is embarking on the road of rural revitalization, with the participation of multinational companies.
Since the implementation of reform and opening-up policies, China has lifted 770 million people out of poverty, meeting the goal of ending poverty, as established in the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, 10 years ahead of schedule.
On July 1, the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, President Xi Jinping said that "we have brought about a historic resolution to the problem of absolute poverty in China, and we are now marching in confident strides toward the second centenary goal of building China into a great modern socialist country in all respects."
