BEIJING, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- A senior Chinese official on Monday stressed the importance of the discourses of Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, on poverty alleviation.
Xi's important discourses serve as the fundamental guidance, general framework, core requirement, basic strategy and source of power for winning the tough battle against poverty, said Hu Chunhua, a member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and head of the State Council Leading Group of Poverty Alleviation and Development, at a symposium.
Successful poverty relief practices since the 18th CPC National Congress have fully proved the scientificity and truthfulness of those discourses, Hu said.
In the final stage for winning the tough battle, China must resolutely meet Xi's requirements and stand firm to the existing lines, principles and policies, he said.
China should raise the quality of poverty relief, push forward the fight against poverty based on different local conditions, and connect the fight against poverty with the country's rural revitalization, he said.
The country should also strengthen the Party's leadership on the fight against poverty to gather the strength of the whole Party and society to win the tough battle against poverty, he added.
