Xinjiang shakes off absolute poverty

Xinhua,November 17, 2020 Adjust font size:

In a historic feat, Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region has bidden farewell to absolute poverty.

The last 10 impoverished counties in Xinjiang have managed to end absolute poverty, the regional government announced Saturday.

The 10 counties, including Shache county, Moyu county and Akto county, are no longer impoverished counties by official standards, the local government said in an online statement.

All the 10 counties are in southern Xinjiang, where the country's largest desert is located. Local people used to have limited access to stable income and public services due to the harsh natural environment and poor infrastructure.
