As the report learned from the Provincial Conference on East-West Cooperation in Poverty Alleviation held in Hangzhou on August 29, this year, 80 counties (cities and districts) in Sichuan, Guizhou, Hubei and Jilin, which are designated as our counterparts for poverty alleviation, will receive 2.47 billion yuan for assistance. A total of 138 additional designated cadres will be deployed to those areas to achieve full coverage.

The cadres from Zhejiang who are temporarily transferred for poverty alleviation go to the forefront to develop special industries based on local conditions and focus on targeted poverty alleviation. In Sichuan, rural e-commerce drives large numbers of poor households to increase their income. In the southeast of Guizhou province, the farming of long-hair rabbits activated the "front and back yard economy" of the poor households. In the southwest of Guizhou province, Anji white tea is planted on the mountain slopes, and bee breeding vitalized the "forest economy", providing people with a new way to get rid of poverty and become rich. At the same time, Zhejiang has implemented the responsibility system of area leaders in assisting its counterpart areas, with 197 cadres on duty, ensuring the orderly development of east-west cooperation in poverty alleviation.

It is learned that Zhejiang will further improve the working mechanism of east-west cooperation for poverty alleviation, and focus precisely to further deepen the pairing relations, increase financial support, strengthen industrial cooperation, highlight talent support, increase labor service cooperation, and mobilize social participation, so as to promote the fast development of poverty alleviation in the 80 counties (cities, districts) in Sichuan, Guizhou, Hubei and Jilin, and ensure that our province walks at the forefront in east-west cooperation for poverty alleviation.
