Poverty Alleviation

Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core has been prioritizing poverty alleviation in the governance of the country, heralding the start of a national campaign against poverty. The 19th CPC National Congress further made targeted poverty alleviation one of the three critical tasks for building a moderately prosperous society in all respects.

Guided by President Xi’s vision on poverty reduction and economic development, China Financial Futures Exchange (CFFEX) has been committed to putting into action the call of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council for eliminating poverty, and to supporting the real economy as its founding mission states. CFFEX has made it its duty and top priority to support China’s anti-poverty campaign and has been actively engaging in this initiative, fulfilling its corporate social responsibilities.

Under the coordinated planning and guidance of the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC), CFFEX paired up with Yanchang County, Shaanxi Province in 2013 to help lift the county out of poverty. Over the past eight years, CFFEX has duly implemented the directives of the CPC CSRC Committee on targeted poverty alleviation, treating it as a strategic task with political significance and assigning senior executives to oversee the progress. Drawing on industry resources, CFFEX has been dedicated to helping Yanchang Country eliminate poverty by establishing sustainable internal growth drivers and coordinating external support. In particular, CFFEX has been assisting the county to build local industries, increase household income, improve public education, and establish charity and assistance programs. After eight years of targeted and persistent efforts, Yanchang County is seeing notable improvement in local infrastructures, industries and household income. The rise in living standards is also changing the mindsets of the local officials and residents.

On September 29, 2018, the State Council Leading Group Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development announced that Yanchang County has become the first county since the 19th CPC National Congress to be lifted out of poverty among those paired with institutions in the securities and futures industry, signaling that CFFEX’s targeted poverty alleviation efforts have borne remarkable fruit.
