Since China Energy began helping Butuo and Puge, both in severely impoverished areas of Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture, Wang said, remarkable results have been achieved in poverty alleviation. As China enters a crucial period in the battle against poverty, the company should continue to cooperate closely with local governments and take advantage of its strengths to advance industrial development, education, consumption and ecological conservation to achieve the goal of poverty eradication, Wang added.
