This publication offers recommendations for the post-2020 poverty reduction strategy in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) based on international practices and geared toward sustaining inclusive economic growth in the country.
Rapid economic growth and sustained anti-poverty efforts have significantly reduced extreme poverty in the PRC and it anticipates eradicating extreme poverty by 2020.
