July 17,2019-- Experts with the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) are helping poverty-stricken areas with targeted and precise relief solutions.
 
A total of 103 experts with the CAS conducted a three-month survey in four counties before giving tailored suggestions for them to fight poverty with a view to local conditions and demands, according to a CAS Press conference Tuesday.
 
"Only when we find the right prescription can we cure the grinding poverty," said Yan Qing, an official with the CAS.
 
Kiwi fruit is on the prescription for Shuicheng, a county of Guizhou Province in southwest China.
 
"Kiwi fruit can adapt to a variety of environmental conditions, covering more than half of China's poor areas," said Zhong Caihong, a researcher of Wuhan Botanical Garden, CAS. "Seedless kiwis with edible peels will go from poor villages to the world. "
 
With the help of scientists and experts, fruits, herbs, grains and other local resources have become the weapon to fight poverty.
 
China aims to eradicate poverty by 2020, the target year to finish building a moderately prosperous society in all respects.
 
By the end of June 2019, more than 101,000 people had been lifted out of poverty in the counties assisted by the CAS.
