Rise Up: Poverty Alleviation in China
China's massive anti-poverty campaign faces its biggest challenge yet as COVID-19 takes its toll. Despite the global pandemic, the on-the-ground work to eradicate extreme poverty by 2020 pushes forward.
Infrastructure, such as railways and highways, represents new opportunities for China's poorest. It connects the most cut-off regions to the rest of the country and gives people access to better jobs, education and commerce. Technology is also connecting people at the poverty line to new markets, whether through e-commerce or even online gaming.
In ‘Rise Up’, we take viewers to the rural villages and burgeoning towns that are at the frontlines of China's war on poverty and meet the people who have transformed their lives despite these unprecedented times.
