From Press Interpreter:

On March 5, 2005, in presenting a working report to the National People’s Conference, Premier Wen Jiabao announced that starting this year, as part of a nationwide effort to alleviate poverty, the government would waive some grade-school fees for students from impoverished families – including the cost of books, miscellaneous expenses, and a living allowance for boarding students. According to Xinhua News Agency, the central government plans to provide 1.3 billion yuan to finance these costs, while local governments will provide 2.8 billion yuan.
