China to launch new round of disciplinary inspection on poverty reduction

Xinhua,October 10, 2018 Adjust font size:

The Communist Party of China (CPC) will launch a new round of disciplinary inspections to specifically target poor implementation of poverty-alleviation policies.

The inspection, approved by the 19th CPC Central Committee, will see inspection teams deployed to Party organizations at 13 provincial-level regions, mostly in the central and western parts of China, and 11 central government agencies, including the Finance Ministry and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs.

Party organizations at the state-owned Agricultural Bank of China and Agricultural Development Bank of China, a policy bank, are also on the inspection list.

Normally inspectors stay at the mentioned premises to find information and conduct their work before producing a report on their findings.

China plans to reduce its poor rural population by over 10 million in 2018, as part of efforts to eradicate poverty by 2020.
