NEW DELHI, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) — “China’s poverty alleviation achievements have been impressive,” said B. R. Deepak, Indian sinologist and professor of New Delhi-based Jawaharlal Nehru University.

The World Bank has said that the world is not on track to meet the global goal of reducing extreme poverty to 3 percent by 2030 and warned that extreme poverty is expected to rise this year for the first time in over 20 years owing to the COVID-19 pandemic and global economic slump.

“Irrespective of these numbers, China has done a commendable job in poverty reduction,” Deepak said in a recent interview with Xinhua.

Noting that China has lifted hundreds of millions out of poverty, the Indian professor said “it is owing to the concerted efforts of the Chinese leadership and people alike that these results have been achieved.”
