At the International Forum on Sharing Poverty Reduction Experience in Beijing on Monday, China’s President Xi Jinping pointed out eradicating poverty is a common dream of all mankind.
He said efforts of the Communist Party of China and the Chinese government have always made it a goal for the people to have a good life.
After eight years of sustained efforts, nearly 100 million poor rural people have risen from poverty, making a tremendous contribution to the global issue of poverty reduction.
Xi further stressed that currently, COVID-19 continues to spread around the world, and the issue of poverty reduction is facing a severe challenge. He said China is ready to work with other countries to advance the process of reducing poverty in the world and the establishment of a community of shared destiny of humanity.
Attorney Noel Felongco, Secretary-General of the National Anti-poverty Commission of the Philippines, attended the forum.
