¥2.4b set aside in counterpart aid work
    2018-03-09  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

SHENZHEN will arrange 2.4 billion yuan (US$379 million) to fund counterpart aid work this year, according to a report by the Shenzhen Special Zone Daily on Thursday, quoting a source from the Shenzhen Counterpart Aid-Work Leading Office.

This year’s aid work will center around the implementation of national strategies on targeted poverty alleviation and rural vitalization, according to the unidentified source.

At the panel discussion with deputies from the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region on Monday, President Xi Jinping called for more intensive and precise efforts to help villages with a large number of impoverished residents shake off poverty.

Premier Li Keqiang said in the government work report earlier this week that China will reduce the poor rural population by over 10 million in 2018 and poverty alleviation efforts will be carried on through the development of local industries, education and health care.

Shenzhen will further promote aid work in Tibet and Xinjiang, speed up construction in Kashi and aid-work coordination with Baise, Hechi in Guangxi, complete poverty alleviation work in Heyuan and Shanwei cities and continue aid work in the Ganzi prefecture in Wushan County, Sichuan Province.

Shenzhen Industrial Park in Kashi will help 20,000 people find employment this year. The city will help complete the construction of Shenzhen Village, the resettlement area designated following the earthquake in Taxian County. The city will implement differentiated measures in townships and e-commerce and tourism policies in poverty alleviation work in Kashi.

For the aid work in Guangxi, the city will send medical teams to strengthen medical cooperation in 17 counties in Baise, Hechi. Shenzhen will develop cooperation with the two cities in sales of agricultural produce, construction of industrial parks and tourism development.

Industrial support and construction is the focus of Shenzhen’s counterpart aid work in Shanwei and Heyuan.

In 2017, 93 projects were transferred to eight industrial parks in the two cities. Shenzhen and Heyuan have set up a 1.5-billion-yuan industrial guidance fund. Shenzhen helped build an AAA-level hospital in Heyuan and Shanwei by investing a total of 3.2 billion yuan last year.

In 2017, the Shenzhen office promoted aid work in 24 counties in six provinces and regions by investing 7.3 billion yuan toward 255 projects.

“Targeted poverty alleviation could resolve the pressing needs of impoverished people in the area and make full use of every penny put toward aid work,” said Chen Hongtian, chairman of Cheung Kei Group and a member of the CPPCC National Committee.

Cheung Kei Group spent more than 60 million yuan on charity work in 2017, but a village bridge project in Heyuan in 2017 impressed Chen the most.

“The biggest hope for villagers in Yase Village is to build a bridge, which enables children to go to school safely, and we helped them realize their dream by spending a small amount of money,” Chen recalled.

“This is a typical case of targeted poverty alleviation, and more such projects are needed to get more entrepreneurs involved in repaying society and realizing their corporate social responsibility,” Chen was quoted as telling the Daily.
