World Bank vows to work with China to fight poverty

From People’s Daily: “The World Bank President said at an ongoing meeting in Beijing that the bank will continue to work with the Chinese Government to eradicate poverty.

‘Although China has made extraordinary progress reducing poverty over the last 25 years, we are all aware that there are still 30 million poor people in the rural areas who lack adequate food, clothing, shelter, education, and health services,’ said James D. Wolfensohn in his message to the national meeting on two massive poverty-reduction projects in China. ”
