Small ethnic groups in north China shake off poverty
HOHHOT, Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- All three of the impoverished small ethnic groups in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region are part of the last batch of people announced to have been lifted out of poverty.
It was announced Thursday that a total of 82 people shook off poverty, including 69 from the Daur ethnic group and 13 from the Ewenki ethnic group.
In 2014, 10,281 people were recognized as living below the poverty line among the three ethnic groups, namely Daur, Ewenki and Oroqen, which have a combined population of about 102,000.
In recent years, the region has devoted a lot of effort and money to poverty alleviation, as well as to the development of the three ethnic groups in education, medical services, culture and sports. Enditem
