China has achieved its goal of poverty reduction as planned, and lifted nearly 100 million people out of poverty in the past eight years.
In February, Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, announced China's "complete victory" in its fight against absolute poverty.
A photo exhibition, Fields of Hope, shows an overall picture of poverty alleviation efforts and achievements made by the Communist Party of China and the Chinese government.
These images are a witness to history, allowing people to get a glimpse of this phase in China's journey. The exhibition is co-organized by the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles, National Museum of China and China Photographers Association.
