48 counties in Yunnan lifted out of poverty

Editor’s note: The year 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Starting from this issue, we continue publishing a column called “Ode to 70 years” to help you understand the earth-shaking changes that have taken place in New China.

On April 30th, the Yunnan Provincial Party Committee and the Yunnan Provincial Government jointly held a press conference, announcing that 33 poverty-stricken counties (cities, districts) in the province have been lifted out of poverty according to on-site evaluation by third-party agencies. So far, 48 poverty-stricken counties (cities, districts) in the province have shaken off poverty cumulatively, accounting for 54.5 percent of the provincial total. Such progress is basically keeping pace with the national progress, laying a solid foundation for a complete victory against poverty by 2020. Here, children from Dulong ethnic group in Yunnan are learning computer skills. Dulong people had also been lifted out of poverty as a whole in 2018.
