Poverty alleviation in Malaysia and what we could learn from China

What the poor need are more sustainable avenues for steady income, paths to existing poverty via education and micro-loans, avenues for training or reskilling and aid to carry them through times such as the pandemic or financial downturns.

Malaysians need to fully embrace that poverty is our problem not just a problem for the poor and true progress can only be made when we all make poverty alleviation a collective goal.
