BEIJING -- Chinese CPPCC members convened a bi-weekly seminar on Friday to put forward suggestions for preventing people from returning to poverty after being lifted out of it.
The seminar held by the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), China's top political advisory body, was presided over by Wang Yang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the CPPCC National Committee.
Wang stressed that preventing people from returning to poverty will be a protracted battle, noting that both the quantity and quality of the poverty alleviation should be valued.
The reasons that people fall back into poverty should be assessed so that measures are worked out to solve them, Wang said, adding that a long-term mechanism should be established to make sure that the achievements made in the poverty relief can stand the test of time.
A total of 10 CPPCC members, a local-level representative, and an expert put forward their suggestions, while over 100 CPPCC members voiced their opinions via a mobile platform.
While hailing the hard-won results in poverty relief, they noted that some people returned to poverty after being lifted out of it, meaning that hard work is still needed to win the battle against poverty.
Some CPPCC members proposed supportive measures including offering jobs to poverty-stricken families and vocational training for them, adding that at least one person in an impoverished family should be provided with a stable job.
They also put forward suggestions including better support for relocated families, developing local specialty industries, and establishing mechanisms to monitor and give emergency aids to people lifted out of poverty.
