Tibet lifts 530 thousand people out of poverty in past five years
2018/02/21

A total of 530,000 people in southwest China's Tibet have escaped from poverty in the past five years and the number of poverty-stricken people has dropped from 860,000 to 330,000 by the end of 2017, according to news from the region’s authority.

Yin Fenshui, director of the poverty-relief office of the region, said that per capita disposable income of poverty-stricken farmers and herdsmen in the region has increased by 16% in 2017 and 150,000 people have been lifted out of poverty in the same year.

In 2018, Tibet plans to help another 150,000 people escape from poverty and manage to maintain a 16% increase in terms of the per capita disposable income of poverty-stricken people.
