Tracing the Origin of China’s Targeted Poverty Alleviation Efforts
Hutou Village of Jian’ou City in southeast China’s Fujian Province is well on its way to realizing agricultural modernization.General Secretary Xi Jinping of the Communist Party of China Central Committee worked in Ningde City of southeast China’s Fujian from 1988 to 1990. To learn about the place well, Xi had set foot on almost every corner of Ningde, including the depth of the mountains on inspection tours of those remote hamlets without highway access. Based on these field trips, he put forward ideas such as “ceaselessly dripping water bores holes in stone” and “weak birds should make an early start” to guide local people to get rid of poverty by adjusting measures to local conditions. Xi nurtured a work style among local officials of being close to the people and listening to their voices by collecting public opinions on local government performance, learning their demands, addressing their concerns, and informing people of the country’s policies.
From Xi’s work in Ningde, people can trace the origin of China’s current poverty alleviation and development strategy, and delineate its evolution－ary process.
