A book of extracts from the discourses on poverty alleviation by Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, has been published by the Central Party Literature Press.
The book, which was compiled by the Party history and literature research institution of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council Leading Group Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development, will be distributed across the country.
Since the 18th CPC National Congress, Xi has put poverty alleviation in a prominent place of state governance, put forward new thinking and new ideas, and made new decisions and new plans, which have helped China make great strides in poverty relief and make significant contributions to poverty reduction around the world.
The extracts were divided into eight subjects, including winning the final battle of poverty relief to create a moderately prosperous society, upholding Party leadership to strengthen the organizational guarantee, sticking to targeted strategies to enhance the effectiveness of poverty alleviation, and continuing to increase spending to strengthen financial support.
The other four subjects are mobilizing the society to unite power from all sources, maintaining strict requirements to drive more solid work, ensuring the principal status of the people to stimulate endogenous power, and cohesively eradicating poverty to build a community of shared future for humanity.
The book contains 242 discourses, extracted from over 60 documents including speeches, reports, and instructions given by Xi between November 15, 2012 and June 2018.
This is the first time for many of the discourses to be published.
