During the discussion meeting on targeted poverty alleviation on the signing day, Xiang Zongxi revealed, "On behalf of CPPCC, I attend the inspection and signing activities of Evergrande’s pairing help to Dafang County of Bijie, I am deeply moved and educated as you these days.

Over the years, more than 20 chairmen and vice chairmen of the CPPCC have visited Bijie for over 30 times. "

He pointed out that the scale, intensity and field of the poverty alleviation this time is unprecedented. The CPPCC hopes Evergrande to create a model for poverty alleviation in Dafang county of Bijie and set a good example of targeted poverty alleviation to the country. "On behalf of the CPPCC, I propose three hopes and demands: first, the CPPCC, Evergrande Group and Guizhou local government shall form the resultant force for poverty alleviation; second, Dafang County shall insist on the combination of external aid and its own motivation and give full play to the subjective initiative of local government; third, explore new methods and ways of targeted poverty alleviation in practice to combine the poverty alleviation and the new rural and town construction." Xiang Zongxi said.

Chairman Hui said at the seminar that the first batch of new rural construction will start on March 1 of next year. We have the confidence, determination and ability to quickly help Dafang County out of poverty and let the local people have a better life at an early date.
