No countries can lift 100 million people out of poverty in a short time like China, says an editor

This year 1st July marks the 100th anniversary of the Communist Party of China (CPC). Over the past 100 years, the Communist Party of China has gone a long way toward the prosperity China.

The Communist Party of China has grown from initially 50 members and now becomes the largest political party in the world with more than 91 million members.

Under the leadership of the CPC, China has made remarkable progress in all fields. In this regard, the eradication of poverty of China, which is one of the strategic focuses of the work of building a comprehensive and prosperous society of China, has been achieved.

In February this year, China declared a “complete victory” in having all of its nearly 100 million rural residents living below the poverty line shaking off poverty. Such declaration was made after eight years of arduous efforts.

“China has needed a relatively short period of time to eradicated poverty for 100 million people. No other country and no other political party in the world has done that,” said Ms MO Xiao Ling, Director of CRI Vientiane. “This is an achievement of the Thought on Socialism with Chinese characteristics in comrade Xi Jinping’s era. China’s achievement in poverty eradication represents the people-centre development thought of the Communist Party of China.”

China is the first developing country in the world to have achieved poverty reduction – the Millennium Development Goal the United Nations had set out to be achieved by 2015.

At a grand ceremony marking the centenary of the CPC in Beijing on Thursday, Secretary General of the Communist Party of China and State President Xi Jinping announced: “China has realized the first centenary goal of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects.”

“This means that we have brought about a historic resolution to the problem of absolute poverty in China, and we are now marching in confident stride towards the second centenary goal of building China into a great modern socialist country in all respects,” Xi said.

Another big achievement that the world praises China is a victory in its fight against Covid-19, under the leadership of the Communist Party of China.

So far, China has continued to assist many countries including the Lao PDR to respond to the Covid-19 through sending to the country vaccines and other medical equipment, medical experts to help it fight the pandemic.
