Poverty Eradication in China: Rhetoric versus Reality
China set the ambitious goal of eliminating rural poverty by 2020 during its Fifth Plenary Session of the 18th Chinese Communist Party Central Committee in 2015. Has China reached its goal? In this webinar we hear from Mr. Matthew Chitwood, an American who recently returned from China after living and working in a remote village in Yunnan province for two years. Matthew will provide us with firsthand observations of the effectiveness of the government’s programs and explain how they are transforming the lives of rural residents. He will help us understand if China’s goal has been met and whether the poverty alleviation programs implemented are sustainable.
