BEIJING, March 5,2020 -- China has relocated 9.3 million poor residents to more inhabitable areas over the past four years, the country's top economic planning body said Wednesday.
 
Among them, 9.2 million residents have shaken off poverty, the National Development and Reform Commission said in a statement on its website.
 
China plans to relocate nearly 10 million poor residents in unsustainable conditions to more inhabitable places during the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-2020) period, as part of the government's efforts to eliminate poverty by 2020.
 
So far, 22 provincial regions have built over 2.6 million apartments and houses for the relocated people. Some of them escaped poverty by gaining employment in poverty alleviation workshops close to their new homes or working in cities.
 
The commission urged local authorities to put support policies in place, foster distinctive industries, and help the relocated residents find jobs and adapt to their new environment.
