“We congratulate the Chinese government and leadership for momentous achievement of eradicating extreme poverty China. It is unprecedented in human history that 770 million people have been taken out of extreme poverty in a span of over 40 years,” Dr. Sania said.

During the meeting, the Chinese ambassador and Dr. Sania Nishtar discussed a draft Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which is being framed between the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China and the Poverty Alleviation and Social Safety Division of Pakistan aimed at establishing a platform for collaboration around poverty eradication.

Speaking to the press after the meeting, Dr. Sania said, “We are working on the final details of the MOU. The Framework will provide both countries an opportunity to capitalize on sharing of experiences in poverty eradication. The collaboration established as a result, therefore, will enable Pakistan to benefit from evidence and lessons in poverty eradication from China’s experience on the one hand. On the other hand, it will enable Pakistan to disseminate lessons from Ehsaas, which is a unique multisectoral approach to tackling poverty.”
