Northwest China's Gansu province has lifted its all 75 impoverished counties out of poverty, the provincial government announced Saturday.
The last eight poverty-stricken counties in the prefectural areas of Linxia, Longnan, Dingxi and Qingyang, respectively, have been removed from the poverty list.
In its bid to build a moderately prosperous society in all respects, China plans to eradicate absolute poverty by the end of this year.
