According to statistics of its relevant institution, China has made strenuous efforts to fight poverty over the past eight years, getting 93 million people out of poverty and eradicating poverty in 832 counties across the country from 2013 to late November last year.

It is striving to steadily improve the people’s standards of living and promote their well-being by building on the successes.

The first-stage highway construction project was recently completed in Laos and opened to traffic with the Laotian President in attendance.

The nearly 440-km-long highway linking Vientiane and a northern border city is now under construction in four stages after its groundbreaking ceremony in December 2018.

The Kenyan President referred to a government plan to build a new industrial city.

The completion of a port building which is now underway in Lamu will turn the area into a major economic and transport route for the region, he said. The construction of an industrial city there would also contribute to economic progress of the country and economic integration of the African continent as well, he added.

Egypt is directing efforts to protecting ecological environment along the coastal areas of the Red Sea.

The government mapped out a plan for planting 210 hectares of mangrove forests in the region and started to plant 300 000 mangrove trees in April last year. The country has already built four new tree nurseries to turn out 50 000 mangrove saplings a year.

Cuba is channelling efforts into solving energy problem. The vice-president of the Council of Ministers of Cuba said that the solar farms in the middle area of the country and the Mariel special development zone generated large quantities of electricity and the bio-power station started operation last year, noting that power production by renewable energies is a primary task for economic development.

Boring was performed for the production of oil and gas and fuel storage tanks and gas pipelines were restored by the government measures, he added.

The Mexican government recently announced a new infrastructure development plan.

The plan is reportedly aimed at creating 400 000 jobs in the near future by investing in the infrastructure construction in communications, energy, environment and other sectors across the country.
