The Chinese government will further push nationwide efforts to alleviate poverty, promising enterprises involved more favorable policies.

The government encourages private enterprises to participate in poverty alleviation. Social organizations and individuals will also be mobilized to support the poor, according to a circular issued by the State Council, or the Cabinet.

Enterprises investing and creating jobs in poor regions will enjoy more favorable policies in taxation and other fields. Where conditions allow, enterprises will be supported in setting up poverty alleviation funds, the circular read.

China aims to establish an environment where the government, market and society join hands in the drive, with everyone willing, allowed and able to provide help to the poor, according to the circular.

Since the reforms and opening-up, all branches of the Communist Party of China, the military, state-owned enterprises and government organs have been participating in poverty reduction and development. Private enterprises, social organizations and individuals have also shown increasing enthusiasm.

But more efforts should be made in mobilization and policy making as well as mechanism improvement, the circular said.
