Abstract

Since the late 1970s, the dialectical relationship between regional development and poverty reduction has become a looming logic red line in the process of China’s reform and opening up and modernization. In general, the two not only support and promote each other but also probably hinder and restrict each other. The government has been trying to achieve the optimum balance between the two by formulating appropriate macroeconomic policies. In the 1980s and 1990s, China launched preferential policies to support the development of coastal areas so as to enhance the overall national strength and promote national poverty alleviation and development and made remarkable achievements, creating a “China miracle”. At the turn of the century, after the significant enhancement of the overall national strength and a substantial increase in the fiscal revenue, the state increased support for the central and western backward areas, launched a series of agricultural policies, social policies and special pro-poor policies for rural residents and impoverished people to promote the adjustment and rebalance of the relationship between regional development and poverty alleviation, and made new brilliant achievements.
