China in these years has seen a galloping economic development and its GDP has ranked sixth in the world. Despite the economic marvel we have made, we should notice tens of thousands of needy people whose livelyhood can't be secured in China. China now has 26,100,000 people living in abject poverty, according to offcial statistics. Those needy people's interests should be given priority and that's also the lofty and urgent task of the Chinese goverment.

"Building a harmonious society" has recently made the headline. But there is a longway to go. How to protect the interest of China's needy people and guide the Chinese people to wealthy and ample lives lays a tough question ahead of the leaders of the third generation.

Chinese president ^^  ^^ spoke of common wealth in his New Year Address which sets ablaze of people's hearts.  That indicates Chinese goverment's consideration of the Chinese people.

I am not trumpeting the achievements of the goverment .

The government has been working hard on social harmony, pledging the country will "put people first, foster a socialist harmonious society and give top priority to resolving urgent problems facing the overwhelming majority of the people."

The government has already announced that it will increase the minimum living allowance for needy people, offer free compulsory education in rural regions, and expand the network of rural co-operative medical care.

Though the goal of common wealth can't be achieve overnight , China has stepped up efforts to stem the widening inequality between the rich and the poor.

As long as people are willing to work, they won't worry being hungry.

Those disabled, YES to give helping hands.

Hands in hands we bring people out from poverty.

WTO estimates that 80% of the economic development in the new century will take place in urban centers. China's recent policy of shifting investment towards the underdeveloped interior is very timely indeed. There's going to be some major social/economic dislocations in China in the comming years because the pace of change will have to be quickened more than ever for China to keep up with global trends.
