(2) Poverty alleviation and development is a long-term historical task. China is still in and will be in the primary stage of socialism for a long time. The overall level of economic and social development is not high, and the problem of regional development imbalance is prominent. The deep-seated contradictions that restrict the development of poverty-stricken areas still exist. The scale of poverty alleviation is large, and the problem of relative poverty is highlighted. The phenomenon of returning to poverty has occurred from time to time. The development of poverty-stricken areas, especially those with special difficulties (hereinafter referred to as contiguous areas), is relatively lagging behind, and the task of poverty alleviation and development is still very arduous. At the same time, China's industrialization, informationization, urbanization, marketization, and internationalization have continued to deepen, the mode of economic development has accelerated, the national economy has maintained steady and rapid development, the overall national strength has been significantly enhanced, and the social security system has been gradually improved, creating a favorable environment for poverty alleviation.

The gap and the major measures to promote the sharing of reform and development results for all people are the urgent need to build a well-off society in an all-round way and build a socialist harmonious society. We must make a new round of poverty alleviation and development battles with greater determination, stronger strength, and more effective measures to ensure that the people of the country will achieve a comprehensive well-off society.
