Xinhuanet, Beijing, October 17 (Reporter Yang Yu Xing Heyang) Develop industrial projects, help poor families increase their income, give full play to their advantages, support local enterprises and introduce foreign enterprises to absorb the employment of the poor. As a central enterprise, China Poly Group resolutely fulfills its fixed-point assistance responsibility, directly invests in assistance funds, leverages its corporate advantages, and explores various forms of precision poverty alleviation models. Recently, Liu Jun, the deputy general manager of China Poly Group, accepted an exclusive interview with Xinhuanet, explaining how Poly has taken a path of poverty alleviation that fits its own development characteristics.
Poly Group has undertaken designated poverty alleviation tasks in 6 counties (banners) across the country: Wutai County, Shanxi Province, Hequ County, Karaqin Banner, Inner Mongolia, Ludian County, Qiaojia County, Yunnan, and Xincheng County, Guangxi. Liu Juncai said: "Using local policies and geographical conditions, based on the market and playing the role of the various groups of Poly Group, a series of poverty alleviation projects have been launched in these designated poverty alleviation counties."
In Wutai County, Shanxi Province, Poly Development Co., Ltd. cooperated with the local German Austrian Elevator Co., Ltd. to create a professional elevator maintenance company. Through training, it absorbed local farmers' employment in the factory, and promoted the local poor farmers to “turn from farm to work” and increase their income. ; Implement a poverty alleviation workshop aided construction project. After completion, a private enterprise in Jiangsu will be introduced to bring equipment and funds to settle in to solve the employment of 500 poor households who have relocated.
In Hequ County, the advantages of producing high-quality miscellaneous grains will be brought into play and food deep-processing projects will be implemented. Established an e-commerce operation center, carried out e-commerce poverty alleviation, focused on giving play to the power of various subsidiaries, developed consumer poverty alleviation, organized 120 subsidiaries at all levels to participate in consumer poverty alleviation activities, and purchased a total of more than 4.5 million yuan in agricultural products for poor households in 2018, directly driving 5 agricultural-related farmers. Corporate economic growth has benefited more than 15,000 poor households.
In Yunnan, poverty alleviation enterprises were actively introduced to designated poverty alleviation counties. In Hunan Qiaojia, the Hunan Xingye Centralized Photovoltaic Poverty Alleviation Project and Qiaojia Ten Thousand Household Photovoltaic Project have been introduced to absorb the employment of the poor, and funds of 416 million yuan have been implemented. At the same time, taking advantage of the arts and crafts specialty of China Crafts Group, a subsidiary of Poly, we are committed to creating a "country of embroidery in Yunnan," in conjunction with the Yunnan Arts and Crafts Industry Association, Suzhou Arts and Crafts Industry Association, Lijiang Dianxiu Tangka Art and Culture Co., Ltd. With funds, Ludian County Yunnan Embroidery Training Center was established to build a poverty alleviation industry in Yunnan Embroidery Culture.
Liu Juncai believes that the poorest counties in poverty-stricken counties are often not the funds, but the lack of effective and successful ways to get rid of poverty. As a central enterprise responsible for targeted poverty alleviation, in the process of poverty alleviation, it is not only to invest funds, but more importantly, to work hard to strengthen the endogenous power of poor areas to achieve true poverty alleviation.
While Poly Group is undertaking the assistance tasks of the six designated poverty alleviation counties, its affiliated enterprises are also undertaking the poverty alleviation tasks assigned by the local government. Since 2015, Poly Group and its subsidiaries have sent 34 cadres (including Xinjiang and Tibet) to the front line to help the poor.
Liu Juncai said that Poly Group has effectively strengthened the leadership of poverty alleviation work. The main leaders lead the team to travel to 6 designated poverty alleviation counties each year, carry out poverty alleviation research, give full play to the advantages of the enterprise, and have embarked on an industrial poverty alleviation road based on their actual conditions. Hequ County, Shanxi Province and Karaqin Banner, Inner Mongolia have completed poverty alleviation and cap removal in 2018, and the remaining 4 counties plan to complete poverty alleviation tasks in 2019.
Liu Juncai said that for areas that have been lifted out of poverty, Poly Group will continue to help and fight the poverty alleviation campaign in accordance with the requirements of its superiors. In particular, prevention of return to poverty is an important task, and follow-up monitoring is strengthened to help the returnees and newly-occupied poor households in a timely manner, so as to achieve a stable lift out of the poor.
