Abstract

China has eliminated extreme poverty at the national level and is embarking on a new journey of “Rural Revitalization”. Using cases studies in Western China, this presentation explains the transformation of China’s anti-poverty strategy, policy and institutional changes. It analyzes the rationale behind China’s anti-poverty practices, summarizes the experiences worthy of reference to other developing countries, and explains the logic of China’s current strategy, policy and institutional design towards revitalization of the rural areas. It will discuss the challenges, difficulties and possible future trends. This Webinar will focus on how to enhance the synergy between state and market at the macro level, promote coordination of poverty alleviation, ecological civilization and common prosperity at the meso level, and learn from internationally successful experiences at the micro level, in supporting the central government to plan, formulate and implement policies of improving the relatively backward areas in China.

中國已消除絕對貧困和區域性貧困,走在鄉村振興的新征程。報告主要以中國西部地區的案例形式,展示中國反貧困戰略、政策和制度變遷的歷程,總結和分析中國反貧困實踐的理論邏輯,提出了對其他發展中國家值得借鑒的經驗,解釋了中國全面開啟鄉村振興新征程的歷史邏輯和時代邏輯、現行的戰略、政策和制度設計,分析了鄉村振興面臨的挑戰和相關理論困境和未來走向。報告將聚焦中國如何在宏觀層面積極探索有為政府和有效市場的協同,在中觀層面推動脫貧攻堅、生態文明和共同富裕協同的發展實踐,而在微觀層面自由吸收各國成功的發展經驗,發揮中央政府超強政策統籌、制定和執行能力的優勢,推動國內相對落後地區的發展。
