Poverty, income inequality and poverty alleviation are the outcomes of economic and social development, while the sustainable and harmonious development of economy and society cannot be achieved without overcoming poverty and income inequality through policies of poverty alleviation. For 40 years since the “reform and opening up”, with rapid economic and social development and poverty alleviation development on a large scale, China’s poverty alleviation has achieved a great success. Economic growth’s effect on poverty reduction corresponds to how fast the economy grows and the way of economic growth, and thus it has its limitations. The poverty decline resulting from targeted poverty alleviation is favorable for reducing the income inequality and increasing the entire residential income level. Targeted poverty alleviation is suitable for any stage of economic and social development, and it also acts as a crucial approach for effectively getting rid of poverty and therefore contributing to inclusive growth and harmonious society.
