China’s poverty alleviation sets fine example to LDCs: Lao Ambassador

BEIJING: -- China’s poverty alleviation efforts are providing lessons for Laos as it makes strides to achieve its goal of graduation from the list of least developed countries by 2020, Ambassador of Laos to China, Mrs Vandee Boutthasavong said recently when she visited China Radio International (CRI) in Beijing.
A keen reader of the CRI website’s Lao language service, she said she always accesses the site for the latest news.

“Thanks to the CRI news service, it’s a pleasure for Lao people to learn that China is trying to help all of its rural residents to escape from poverty in 2020,” the Ambassador said.
She said the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the State had paid particular attention to the work of poverty reduction with detailed and thorough planning.
The report by CPC General Secretary Xi Jinping to the opening of the 5-yearly Congress points out that by 2020, all of China’s rural residents are expected to be relieved from poverty to achieve the goal of a moderately prosperous society.
Ambassador Mrs Vandee also expressed gratitude on behalf of the country for CPC General Secretary and President Xi ’s statement that the CPC is not just a political party that seeks happiness for the Chinese people, but also a political party that is struggling to fulfil its mission of humanity.
In the past five years, around 60 million Chinese have been lifted out of poverty.
The Ambassador was one of many international observers keeping a close eye on proceedings at the ongoing 19th CPC National Congress.
She said many had hailed China’s development record over the past five years and spoken highly of the report presented by General Secretary Xi Jinping of the CPC to the opening of the Congress.
Over the past five years, China’s foreign policy has promoted not only the social and economic development of China but been striving towards peaceful development in the region and the world.
The Belt and Road initiative enhances cultural exchanges and economic cooperation connecting hubs along key trade routes.
President Xi Jinping proposed the Belt and Road Initiative in 2013, a concept proceeding rapidly towards actuality which has won acclaim and favourable reception from the international community in the period since.
The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation held this May in Beijing achieved fruitful outcomes.
So far, China has already signed “Belt and Road” cooperation documents with 74 countries and international organisations.
China also launched the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the Silk Road Fund, hosted a series of international meetings like the Informal APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting, the G20 Summit and the 2017 BRICS summit.
Through these contributions and more, the world is increasingly witnessing the fruits of efforts China has made in safeguarding global peace and promoting development.
