Project meeting on Financial Sector Development for Growth and Poverty Reduction
Getting an accurate picture of poverty and inequality trends and patterns in the world’s most populous country is central to understanding changes in global inequality and poverty – these alter significantly when China is included or excluded. China has achieved dramatic improvements in welfare indicators over the last twenty-five years, but there are strong regional variations in poverty and inequality and hence national indicators provide a very incomplete picture.
