BEIJING, April 1 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Wang Yang on Saturday urged full implementation of the country's grand strategy to reduce poverty.
Poverty reduction efforts should be more targeted and precise, Wang said when chairing a meeting on poverty relief, calling for tighter supervision of poverty relief efforts.
China has set 2020 as the target year to complete building a "moderately prosperous society" in all aspects, and the hardest part is lifting all poor rural population out of poverty.
