As the whole nation held activities commemorating the 10th anniversary of Wenchuan Great Earthquake, a conference promoting the poverty relief cooperation between Zhejiang and Sichuan was holding in Guangyuan, Sichuan, together with a series of other assisting activities. At the ceremony of collaborative assistance, the ceremony of signing projects of economic and trade cooperation and the ceremony of donation, 19 projects were signed worth an amount of 16.5 billion yuan. Entrusted by the Provincial Party Committee and the Provincial Government, Feng Fei, member of the standing committee of the Provincial Party Committee and executive vice governor, attended the meeting and delivered a speech. Hong Tianyun, deputy head of the Poverty Relief Office of the State Council, was present at the meeting.
Since our poverty relief cooperation with Sichuan Province, we have offered point-to-point assistance in people’s livelihood, industry and talent training to improve the endogenous dynamics of self-development for the poverty-stricken areas of Sichuan. By the end of 2017, altogether about 1.2 billion yuan had been input to Sichuan Province for poverty relief, and over 2,000 projects had gotten underway, solving the water problem for 550,000 people, the medical problem for 2.4 million people, and the housing problem for 15,000 people. Through the nurture of the local husbandry, we had greatly improved the incoming of the farmers and herdsmen. To solve the problem of talent scarcity, we had trained local talents about 53,000 person-times, and sent 2,900 government workers taking temporary posts. All these measures had greatly strengthened the endogenous dynamics of the cooperative areas.
