On June 17th, Unite Our Efforts—Forum on Targeted Poverty Relief was held in Wuhan. The Forum was jointly held by Beijing Reignwood Culture Foundation, China Poverty Alleviation Magazine of the Poverty Relief Office under the State Council and Poverty Relief Office of Hubei Province. Officials and leaders from government and financial institutions and Reignwood Group attended this meeting.
The forum was mainly focusing on the topic of fixed-point poverty alleviation model between enterprises and deep impoverished counties. Guests attending this forum had a discussion from the perspective of poverty relief policy, successful cases, and the general situation of nationwide poverty relief.
The chief editor of the poverty relief office Yang Yongchun made an introduction to the general condition of nationwide poverty relief from the aspects of industry linkage, industry layout, industry structure and industry prospective. He stressed on promoting local economy through integrated industry development on the basis of increasing employment.
President of China Development Bank Beijing Branch Xu Ming pointed that Reignwood’s VOSS water poverty relief program is a typical case of targeted poverty relief and fits with the direction which the bank puts high priority on.
After the forum, the Pure Intension, Pure Action China Domestic Made VOSS Water Public Service Launch Event was held, signifying the new era of VOSS’s development in China’s market.
Poverty relief through industry development could promote development of poor areas and provide employment opportunities for people living in poverty, which can be seen as the “blood transfusion” poverty relief. While poverty relief through education could change the fate of poor children thus changing the lives of their families, and therefore it is a type of “Blood Generation” poverty relief.
The head of VOSS water production base, Mr. Xia Jinshun pointed that on May 30th, 2018, VOSS water program was included in the country’s program of poverty relief through industry development. On one hand, the enterprise will fully play its role in poverty relief thorough industry development. On the other hand, it will proactively fulfill its environmental protection responsibility and invest in at least 800 thousand yuan special fund each year in continuously improving the education, medical care and infrastructure of Zhuxi.
In recent years, Reignwood Group has proactively responded to the country’s targeted poverty reduction call by focusing on deep poverty area and contributing to poverty relief through education. As one of country’s poorest countries, Zhuxi has given up many opportunities of development to protect its water source. Reignwood Group, taking the poverty relief as its main battlefield, has been continuously consolidating the “blood transfusion” thorough “blood generation”.
