Central Gov't Preparing New Approach to Poverty Fight, Official Says
(Beijing) – The State Council and the Ministry of Finance are working on policies to better handle poverty alleviation efforts at the county level and they will be released soon, a central government official said on January 27.
Wang Guoliang, deputy director of the cabinet's Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development, said the policies would include setting up a mechanism that would eventually remove counties from an official poverty list, allowing subsidies to benefit people who really need them.
