The story of Mingshitang Village is unfolding in many areas of Shandong.

Cities of Shandong have specified their focal points of poverty alleviation, according to an official of Shandong Provincial Leading Group Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development. Shandong will ensure the basic life of the aged, weak, sick and disabled in abject poverty through such four measures as the flexible use of assets income, subsistence allowance, physical supplies and mutual assistance among neighbors.

By the end of 2018, Shandong aims to complete the relocation of 15,000 eligible impoverished people and 28,000 who will be relocated at the same period.

Shandong started the relocation and reconstruction in the Yellow River flood plain area from October last year. 17 counties of 7 cities will be relocated to shake off the troubles of flood and lead to the way out of poverty.

“The refilling project has been finished in two pilot flood-control dams,” said Zhang Jizheng, deputy secretary of Dongming County in Heze. “Next, we will speed up the construction of another two pilot flood-control dams and endeavor to make them livable by the end of the year.”

“What we should do is to lift people out of the poverty and eliminate poverty at source,” Zhang Jizheng added.

“The relocation and reconstruction project has been activated in the Yellow River flood plain area of Dongying,” Wang Xinming, a member of the CPPCC Shandong Provincial Committee and deputy chairman of the CPPCC Dongying Municipal Committee. “We will spare no efforts to build the area into an integrated demonstration area of efficient ecological agriculture.
