Thanks to efforts and initiatives like this, among other factors, more than 850 million people have been lifted out of poverty in the PRC according to the World Bank.
In fact, despite having a much larger population than the US, China has fewer people living in poverty. 30.5 million people in the PRC versus 39.7 million Americans.
