|GUIYANG, Jan. 1, 2019 -- Altogether 670,000 people living in remote and poverty-stricken areas in southwest China's Guizhou Province will be relocated to more developed communities in 2019, the provincial authorities said at the ongoing annual session of the provincial People's Congress Wednesday.
The province will enhance public services, and provide tailor-made job training courses for them. Local governments also guarantee that at least one family member of a relocated household will be given a job.
Schools, kindergartens and clinics will be set up to ensure a smooth move, provincial authorities said.
The province set the goal to help 1.88 million people shake off poverty by relocation during the 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-2020).
Alleviating poverty through relocation has been a "key drive" in the country's poverty reduction and the supply-side structural reform for the country during the past few years.
China has set 2020 as the target to finish building a moderately prosperous society and eradicate poverty.
