About the Event

In 2015 China set the goal of eradicating poverty by 2020. So, has it happened? On August 27th, SupChina is hosting a Sinica live podcast with Chinese poverty policy expert Gao Qin and Matt Chitwood, an American that recently returned from two years in a remote mountain village in Yunnan province where he observed first-hand drastic social and economic change in rural China, to discuss the reality of China’s poverty eradication in 2020.
