How China responds could provide important lessons for other fast-developing countries. China has seen a remarkable tenfold increase in real GDP since 1990. Rates of extreme poverty have dropped from 84 percent in 1980 to just 10 percent today, according to World Bank figures. Can China lift that last 10 percent of its population out of extreme poverty and sustain improved livelihoods over the long run?Emerging details of the 13th Five-Year Plan offer some clues. Many proposed programs bear directly or indirectly on poverty reduction, environmental stewardship or both. They include rural land reform, cleaner industrial development, promotion of new energy vehicles, protection of forests, efficient water management, and an improved social insurance system aimed at lifting people out of poverty.As the world pivots from commitments in 2015 to action in 2016, the opportunities and challenges are vast. Chinas leaders have made their vision clear. President Xi said at the 2015 climate change conference: “The Paris conference is not the finishing line but a new starting point.”China has the chance to embrace a sustainable economic growth model that will benefit its people as well as become an example for others to follow. Let us hope the 13th Five-Year Plan turns this vision into tangible progress.The author is executive vice-president and managing director of World Resources Institute.Previous Page 12Next PagePrevious Page 12Next Page0Most Viewed Todays Top NewsHousing booms may hurt, not heal, local growthTime to break free of protectionist shacklesAllow space for students to discover themselvesPhilippines arbitration case built on false pretextFunding global public goods for worlds recoveryForum TrendsTips to manage stress when studying abroadWhy are Chinese students heading to the US?Should investment lessons be mandatory?How can doctors and patients regain trust?Are women-only buses discriminatory?Do student evaluations measure teaching effectiveness?What annoys you most while traveling in China?ColumnistsTrumps willingness to talk to the DPRK is the right approachFestival drama peels layers of character who isnt thereFeatured ContributorsTurnball highlights China-Australia FTA as a valuable assetBloody curtain rising to greet US first-ever presidentStar BloggersMy best friend in China: 35th anniversary of China Daily By subeChina Daily is like a friend who stays with me in every mood in my life.
