Dec.24,2019 -- All the 74 counties and county-level districts in Tibet autonomous region have been lifted out poverty, which means the whole region has got rid of absolute impoverishment, according to Tibet authorities Monday.
 
Tibet’s Poverty Alleviation Office said in a notice issued on December 9 that the last batch of 19 counties and county-level districts have shaken off poverty.
 
Tibet was a tough nut to crack in China’s poverty relief campaign due to its harsh natural conditions and complicated historical reasons. In 2015, the occurrence rate of poverty in Tibet was as high as 25.32%.
