China focuses on easing rural poverty – Joe McDonald

From AP, via the Boston Globe:

China’s communist leaders have issued an economic plan that calls for developing the poor countryside in an effort to narrow the growing and politically explosive gap between rich and poor, state media said Wednesday.

The five-year plan was approved at an annual leadership meeting that ended last week but was not released to the public until this week.
