CONGRATULATIONS TO PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA ON 70TH ANNIVERSARY
The People’s Republic of China is celebrating 70 years of nationhood. What an incredible journey this has been!
From a country destroyed by international interference to a strong, proud country re-establishing a solid position in the world, offering stable leadership in the global community and opportunities for the countries who are increasingly joining the new era. Through the establishment of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), increasing numbers of countries are participating in a new era global community.
From a feudal society riddled with internal strife and racked with poverty and oppression to a strongly emerging middle class able to enjoy international travel. China has lifted 25% of the world’s population out of poverty in just a few decades. Since 1978 the number of people living in poverty has reduced from 770 million to 16.6 million. China has contributed 70% to the global poverty alleviation achievement.
The reduction in poverty is the greatest contribution a developing country can make to the core human rights of food, shelter and education.
