June 4, 2021 -- An international conference was held online on Wednesday to share the poverty-alleviation and rural-revitalization achievements made in China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.
Chen Xu, China's permanent representative to the United Nations Office at Geneva, attended the conference. He said that all 32 poverty-stricken counties in Xinjiang had been lifted out of poverty in November. The region has made unprecedented achievements in economic and social development, as well as improving people's well-being, to become a role model in China's effort to eliminate extreme poverty.
"I hoped the event would introduce China's approach and share its experiences and actions in poverty reduction with people from different countries and regions," Chen said.
Arkin Tuniyaz, a member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China in Xinjiang, introduce the overall situation of the region's course of poverty reduction, including how the region developed rural tourism, e-commerce and other sectors to increase villagers' income; how housing renovation and basic infrastructure upgrades have been carried out in impoverished places; and how public services, including medical service and education for children, have been improved in remote areas.
Village cadres, teachers, medical workers, e-commerce industry practitioners, cotton growers and other people from varied walks of life came to share their own experiences in rising out of poverty or helping others to do so.
