It is pointed out at the meeting that CCPIT will resolutely implement General Secretary Xi Jinping’s instructions and the CPC Central Committee’s major decisions and arrangements on poverty alleviation. It will take poverty alleviation as a major political task, adhere to the reality, grasp the law of poverty reduction, and work with Congjiang County of Guizhou Province and Lindian County of Heilongjiang Province to overcome difficulties, so as to win the battle against poverty and write a chapter of poverty reduction with Chinese characteristics.
It is stressed that shaking off poverty is not the end but the starting point for a new life and a new endeavor. It is imperative to study and implement the guiding principles of General Secretary Xi Jinping’s speeches. In light of the new situation and new requirements arising from the new development stage, philosophy and paradigm, we must unswervingly shoulder the political responsibility of providing targeted assistance, and consolidate and expand the effective linkup of poverty alleviation achievements and rural revitalization. Also, we should continue our targeted assistance and encourage targeted counties to break new ground in accelerating the modernization of agriculture and rural areas. In addition, we should open a new chapter in comprehensively promoting rural revitalization and make new achievements in high-quality development. We’ll promote the high-quality and efficient development of agriculture, make rural areas livable and business-friendly, make farmers affluent and wealthy, and strive to write a new chapter from a new starting point.
The meeting required that Congjiang County and Lindian County should be urged and guided to effectively link up the leadership system, work system, development plan, and policies and measures during the transition period to ensure that large-scale return to poverty would not occur. All departments and parties should take the designated assistance as an important agenda, and the main responsible persons should personally deploy, organize, and promote such work, and resolutely implement the annual assistance tasks and objectives. Temporary cadres and first secretaries stationed in villages should bear in mind their mission, live up to the trust placed in them, take root in the grassroots, serve the frontline, and ensure that all assistance measures are well implemented.
Members of leading groups of departments and directly affiliated departments of CCPIT, representatives of middle-ranking cadres and young cadres below middle ranks, advanced collective representatives, outstanding temporary cadres, first secretaries in villages, and advanced individuals in poverty alleviation campaign attended the meeting.
