BEIJING, April 6 (Xinhua) -- In the battle against poverty, China has accumulated valuable experience which belongs both to China itself and to the rest of the world, and offers enlightenment to the international community, said a white paper released Tuesday.
Bearing in mind its prevailing reality and understanding the nature of poverty and the status of poverty reduction, China embarked on a path of poverty reduction and designed an approach with Chinese characteristics, according to the white paper titled "Poverty Alleviation: China's Experience and Contribution."
