Это ежегодный закрытый Конгресс на 1000 делегатов из более, чем 40 стран мира, который проходит с 2016 года. Основная цель – создание крупномасштабной площадки для взаимополезного сотрудничества, обмена опытом, установления новых деловых связей среди участников мирового сообщества: политиков, государственных деятелей, бизнесменов, инвесторов, продавцов предложений, лидеров мнений, представителей финансовых институтов.

В рамках Конгресса будет затронуто множество актуальных тем, которые можно обсудить как публично, так и кулуарно.

Представители стартапов получат уникальную возможность участия в выставке START UP SHOW ONLINE EXPO, которая начнется демо-днем 13 сентября  2019 года в Перми (Россия). Выступление перед таким компаниями, как  «Эр-Телеком», «Сибур-Химпром», «Уралкалий», «Уралхим», «Промобот», «CodeBits Interactive» откроет начинающим бизнесам возможность запуска совместных пилотных проектов. Последующее участие в INVESTORS DAY непосредственно на самом Конгрессе 4 октября 2019 года даст дополнительные шансы заручиться финансовой поддержкой европейских инвесторов, суммарный потенциал которой составляет на Конгрессе 200 млн. евро, а также воспользоваться особыми условиями кредитования и получить шанс выиграть грант в размере 100 тыс. долларов. Третьим этапом участия стартапа в Конгрессе станет презентация на конференции Web Summit, которая пройдет  4 -7 ноября 2019 в Лиссабоне. 

Строительные компании и профессиональные риелторы с готовностью предложат элитную первичную и вторичную недвижимость из 27 стран мира на продажу и в аренду по приемлемым ценам. Также они расскажут о льготном кредитовании в европейских банках от 1,2% годовых, способе управления недвижимостью, как пенсией и прямыми накоплениями и возможностях получения ПМЖ и второго гражданства.

На конгрессе традиционно будут представлены и другие трендовые инвестиционные направления: золото и золотые активы,  IT технологии, ICO и венчурные инвестиции, криптовалюты - блокчейн, ценные бумаги национальных компаний, киноиндустрия и антиквариат, вертолётный и яхтенный бизнес, мода, дорогая одежда и предметы роскоши.

Таким образом, инвесторам будет открыт широкий спектр возможностей преумножения капитала. Важно то, что организаторы заботятся о качестве предоставляемых позиций для вложения средств: так,  например, количество заявок стартапов в результате тщательного отбора снизится с 500 до 50. Это касается и всех других предложений: только качество и надежность.

И, в целом, Конгресс – это всегда создание качественного нетворкинга с единомышленниками. Участники получат возможность вступления в закрытый клуб инвесторов,  деловой клуб «Торатау» (при поддержке Республики Башкортостан), суммарный годовой оборот резидентов которого составляет  3,7 млрд рублей. Будут организованы круглые столы с участием главы Баварско-русского культурного общества – Roman Naydich и управляющего партнера немецкой компании Kaiser Estate – Boris Bronstein, а также Господина Сандера и Господина Кузина с презентацией «GlobalRealEstate Forum как международная Площадка для развития бизнеса и инвестиций».

Для развития мастерства Business Consultant & Boske Capital Group будут собраны бизнес-столы, на которых можно будет узнать о психологических приемах по увеличению продаж, практиках успешных сделок. А Владислав Бермуда - богатырь «Бесплатного Маркетинга», инвестор и сооснователь  сервиса бесплатных авиаперелетов «Летайбесплатно» - предложит «25 креативных идей на Миллион», а также презентует свой бестселлер. Закрытый креативный клуб с его президентом Романом Масленниковым расскажет конгрессменам про пятнадцать PR-идей, предложит бесплатное участие в хайп-марафоне, подписку на закрытый Телеграм-канал с идеями на каждый день и книгу «Хайпанем» с автографом. Также будут проведены открытые сессии Dr. Андрея Курча, ректора Академии ТОП-Менеджмента - Президента Международной инвестиционно-консалтинговой группы AG.CAPITAL. Андрей Курч – входящий в десятку лучших, тренер-конультант по бизнесу, эксперт в области менеджмента, автор курсов MBA, экологической системы управления бизнесом и жизнью, создатель технологии «Револьверные продажи», разработчик CRM-систем для рынка недвижимости «DOM-KRAT», учредитель Федеральной сети агентств недвижимости «Альфа».

Следует отметить, что в рамках Конгресса будут присутствовать компании, отличающиеся своим инновационным подходом. Например, медиа-холдинг «Bem Media» с огромной аудиторией, ежемесячным тиражом - более 900 тыс. экземпляров русскоязычной прессы в Германии и популярным ТЕЛЕканалом «TVRUS».

Также свои услуги презентует маркетинговое агентство для конгрессменов на LTC Media Verlag «Блеск», «Neue Zeiten»,«Русский Вояж», «Карьера», которое на протяжении семнадцати лет проводит рекламные кампании для Министерства туризма Израиля, авиакомпании «Аэрофлот»,  S7, MAU (Международные авиалинии Украины),  AirAstana И др.

X International Gas Congress sums up its outcomes

Published in Economics
Friday, 24 May 2019 10:19

X International Gas Congress, which outlined new vectors of development of interstate cooperation in gas sphere and supported the coordination of joint plans for future, has accomplished its work in Avaza National tourist zone.

Atmosphere and course of discussions at the Congress was provided by the fact that the role of natural gas as the most ecologically acceptable and economically beneficial energy resource, which supports stable development of the countries, is growing rapidly in the world energy industry. Therefore, the intent of leading companies of the planet to establish close cooperation with our country, which has rich reserves of gas in the world, is quite legitimate.

Demand on energy is the key indicator for any energy forecast. In this case, the opinion of experts is clear – Asia will be in the focus in international gas trade for next three decades, which will lead to the necessity of formation of gas transport and gas processing infrastructure. Thus, geographic factor strengthens the positions of Turkmenistan in the world energy markets. Special interest raised by the presentation of the projects of industrial development of largest Galkynysh Field and construction of transnational gas pipeline Turkmenistan – Afghanistan – Pakistan – India among the participants of the Congress became another evidence to this.

At the same time, opportunities of supply of Turkmen gas to Europe and Russian, plans for increment of throughput capacity of Central Asia – China gas line have been actively discussed at the sessions and fields of the Forum.

Diversification of oil and gas industry and enhancement of its innovative component are important aspects of energy strategy steadily implemented by President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov. Rating of the companies successfully working in this direction are headed now by representatives of business circles of the Republic of Korean and Japan, together with which number of big projects of deep processing of natural gas has been implemented.

At the same time, it was said at the forum that Turkmenistan is open for other investors offering the projects of construction of super modern facilities making variety of petrochemical production based on advanced technologies and latest scientific and technical developments.

Perspective directions of cooperation in oil and gas industry of Turkmenistan were discussed on the second day of the Congress. Reports of top managers and specialists of structural divisions of Turkmen fuel and energy complex – Turkmenbashy Refinery Complex and the State Concern Türkmengaz, hve been listened with keen interest.

At present time, Conceptual strategy of development of Turkmenbashy refinery Complex and Seydi Refinery is under development at the request of the Head of the State. Capabilities of Turkmenbashy Refinery Complex and Seydi Refinery will be analysed in details, perspective directions of their further development as well as optimum variety of petroleum products, which are on high demand in the world market and can be produced at the facilities of the complex, will be outlined.

In particular, it is planned to build new technological lines, which will refine the oil up to 90 percent, at Turkmenbashy Refinery Complex. It includes the complex of units for hydro treatment of diesel fractions and gasolines, catalyst cracking of heavy residuals of oil refining as well as the installations for production of high quality base technical oils.

In addition, technical and economic feasibility of production of benzene at Seydi Refinery for its further use as a raw material for production of valuable products like polystyrene and rubber, which are on high demand in the world market, is studied. In addition, the construction of these units will allow Turkmen petrochemical industry to start the production of gasoline meeting Euro 5 standards.

Representatives of PETRONAS (Malaysia) and Chinese National Petroleum Corporation presented the review of their activity in Turkmenistan.

International petroleum company PETRONAS works for more than 20 years in Turkmenistan on the base of the Production Sharing Agreement on Block 1 in Caspian Sea. For this period, PETRONAS has invested more than 10.7 billion US dollars to the exploration and development of contractual territory , which is located 80 km to the southwest from Turkmenbashy.

At present moment, intensive production of oil and gas is carried out at Magtumguly and Diyarbekir Fields. Activation of drilling works in the western part of Garagol Deniz Field is also planned. This project includes the construction of offshore platform, which will be connected with onshore gas terminal in Kiyanly by the pipeline. Gas treatment plant and hydrocarbon separation units for separation of oil, condensate and associated gas has been built previously in this place.

Starting from 1998, the company implements international educational programme for the school graduates of Turkmenistan who study in University of Technology of PETRONAS. This university has also signed the Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation with International Oil and Gas University of our country for creation of favourable climate for education and research activity.

In its turn, Chinese National Petroleum Corporation make exploration, development and production at Bagtiyarlyk territory, which became one of the sources for Turkmenistan – China gas pipeline. Starting from 2007 when the Production Sharing Agreement was signed, big volume of works has been carried out at the right bank of Amudary River related to seismic surveys, drilling of new exploration and production wells.

It resulted in discovery of new gas deposits including in Samandepe field (Block A) as well as eastern, southern and northern parts of Bagtiyarlyk contractual territory (Blcok B). High debits of oil and gas were receied during well tests in central part of Amudarya basin. Two gas processing plants at Samandepe Field and Hojambaz etrap, more than 110 test and production wells as well as other facilities of production, logistic and social infrastructure have been built.

At present time, Amudarya Regional Gas Company, which is the part of CNPC, continues work on improvement of material base of Turkmenistan – China pipeline. The first phase of the project of development of the field, which located in eastern part of Bagtiyarlyk contractual territory, has been successfully implemented

Construction of gas collection stations, pipelines, gas treatment unit and other infrastructural facilities has been carried out in this place in 2018. Six directional wells, which tests showed high debits of gas, have been prepared for production. In January this year, first batch of high quality sale gas has been produced there.

It is planned to start industrial production of gas in the eastern part of B Block in the end of 2019. It is expected that completion of the first phase of the project will provide the production of 1.7 billion cubic meters of gas per year. Total volume of product supplied to Turkmenistan – China pipeline from the fields of Bagtiyarlyk contractual territory is more than 82 billion cubic meters today.

Direction of International Oil and Gas University spoke in details about training of personnel for oil and gas industry of our country and international cooperation in this field.

Numerous business meetings between foreign businessmen and heads of oil and gas departments and concerns of Turkmenistan, during which specific proposals for establishment of beneficial partnership in different spheres of national gas industry, have been held under X International Gas Congress.

Turkmenistan hosts X International Gas congress

Published in World
Wednesday, 22 May 2019 16:50

X Turkmenistan International Gas Congress (TGC 2019) has started work in Avaza National tourist zone. Big specialized forum, which is to give new impulse to international cooperation in energy sphere, was organized by the State Concern Türkmengaz.

For many years, the Congress serves as a platform for discussion of the conditions and perspectives of development of the world gas industry. High status and prestige of this major event is fully indicated by current anniversary forum of the TGC 2019, which has brought together around 450 delegates from 30 countries including from European Union, USA, UAE, Japan, China, the Republic of Korea, Turkey, India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, CIS and other countries. It includes top managers of big petroleum, service and consulting companies, representatives of profile ministries and departments, competent international organizations and financial structures, diplomatic and scientific circles as well as mass media.

The opening ceremony of the forum took place in fashionable Berkarar Hotel in the morning. Gas – Fuel of Future was the theme of plenary session, under which representatives of structural divisions of fuel and energy complex of Turkemnistan introduced potential partners with key directions of energy strategy and perspective plans of development of gas industry of the country.

As is known, Turkmenistan holds the fourth position in the world by gas reserves, which are estimated by more than 50 trillion cubic meters. According to the data, which are published annually in the OPEC statistic reports, our country is on the third place by gas production volumes in Europe and CIS.

Having significant energy potential, Turkmenistan implements large-scale projects for establishment of multidimensional export infrastructure of its energy carriers. This is visually indicated by transnational gas line Turkmenistan – China, which embodied the implementation of the idea of restoration of the Silk Route that used to connect the peoples of Europe and Asia for thousands of years.

Construction of Turkmenistan – Afghanistan – Pakistan – India gas line (TAPI) is another strategic important initiative. President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov highlights that new energy route, which will provide long-tterm supply of natural gas to the largest countries of Southeast Asia, will give strong impulse to economic development of the region, will support the solution of social and humanitarian issues and the strengthening of peace and stability.

The participants of the session were presented with the information on the course of industrial development of the biggest land super gigantic gas deposit Galkynysh, which territory is more than 4,000 square kilometres.

According to the data received from geological surveys including by 2-D and 3-D seismic, average production capacity of carbonate column is more than 500 meters with 84.5 percent ratio of gas saturation. At present moment, operation fund of the field has more than 40 wells, which debit is two million cubic meters of gas per day in average.

At the same time, there is high opportunity that the field goes beyond the borders of existing territory in northwest and southeast directions. After additional information, the capacity of gas reserves of Galkynysh Field can be re-estimated higher.

Complex of facilities for production of 30 billion cubic meters of ale gas per year has been commissioned at the field. Similar complexes with the same production capacity, which will feed the TAPI gas line, are under construction.

In addition, new trends in the world gas industry and various aspects of development of sustainable energy sphere in Asia have been discussed at the plenary session. Regional Director of British Gaffney, Cline & Associates Petroleum Company John Gaffney and the UN Permanent Coordinator in Turkmenistan Elena Panova made reports on this subject.

According to the Forecast of Development of the World Economy until 2040 from British Petroleum Corporation (BP World energy Outlook, 2019), the world demand on natural gas will grow steadily. Power energy, construction, transport, petrochemical industry and other industrial spheres will be drive engines of this growth.

At the same time, high rates of gas consumption are expected in in the next 20 years in China, India and other Asian countries. Production of liquefied gas, wind and solar energy will also receive an active development. Environmental policy pursued by many world countries, transit to use of eco-friendly energy, to which President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov orients scientific and technical potential of Turkmenistan, are the main factors in this area.

Addressing the participants of the Congress, the UN Permanent Coordinator in Turkmenistan highlighted that the United Nations considers such major meetings as an opportunity to appeal to national world partners and to remind that the development can be sustainable only in combination with the ecology.

Having initiated to call for the Summit on the Measures for Climate Change in September 2019, the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres called this programme as the main issue of our time and its solution as the turning point is the history.

Having noted that the implementation of the Paris Treaty, practice of successful projects in the sphere of low-carbon development, mitigation of impacts and adaptation to the climate change on local levels, Mrs Panova expressed the confidence that Turkmenistan has something to present to the world community both in ecological as well as in sustainable development sphere.

In her speech, the UN Representative has also highlighted the subjects of interstate cooperation in energy sphere. The TAPI project is the best example of the fact that Turkmenistan uses its hydrocarbon reserves for peace and stable development of neighbouring regions, Mrs Panova said, having highlighted that the pipelines unite the countries and bring stability to regions they run across. It makes positive effect on entire nations, which life becomes better due to oil, gas and power energy, which was repeatedly mentioned by Turkmen leader from high tribunes of competent international organizations and forums.

This subject was continued in the next session of the Forum named TAPI: Pipeline of peace and stability where detailed information about the work made by the participants of this major project, its financing, etc. has been presented.

In particular, it is planned to accomplish the construction of Turkmen section of energy line. According to completed information, the length of 33 billion cubic meters per year gas line will be 1,840 kilometres including 205 kilometres on the territory of Turkmenistan.

This idea of Turkmen leader runs as a red line across all reports of the spokesmen at the session TAPI: Pipeline of Peace and Stability. It is also important that in addition to certain volumes of gas, Afghanistan will receive significant commercial benefit for transit of Turkmen energy carriers across its territory.

In general, the first phase of the project is planned to be accomplished in 2020. The second phase provides the construction of compressor stations along the pipeline, which will increase its throughput capacity.

The TAPI is a grandiose project for entire region, Special Assistant of the Prime Ministers of Pakistan on Oil Nadim Baber highlighted, having noted that in the beginning of the year, Turkmenistan and Pakistan have signed several documents including the General Terms of the Agreement with the Government of receiving state between the Government of Pakistan and TAPI Pipeline Company Limited Joint stock Venture. There is not much left until we would be able to start practical implementation of the project, Nadim Baber said.

Heads and leading specialists of Scientific and Research Institute of Natural Gas of the State Türkmengaz Concern, GazpromVNIIGAZ Open Joint Stock Venture, Oxford Institute of Energy Studies, Argus Media international information and analytical agency and other made reports at the session.

It was mentioned that issues of development of the world energy industry and creation of favourable investment climate for the implementation of the projects in this strategic section are closely connected with the problem of provision of reliability and protection of international supplies of energy carriers. First of all, this is related to the transportation of natural gas as delivery of this fuel to the world markets is carried out by pipelines.

In this context, constructive character of the initiatives of the President of Turkmenistan aimed at the formation of new global architecture of energy security, which is an important factor of stable development of the states, universal peace and stability, has been highlighted. The Resolutions on Reliable and stable transit of energy carriers and its role in provision of sustainable development and international cooperation, which were adopted twice by the UN general Assembly, visually indicate the appropriateness of these proposals in the view of modern realities.

Deputy Director of the Economics and Technology Research Institute of Chinese National Petroleum Corporation Liu Chaoquan presented natural gas market review in China.

It was mentioned that consumption of natural including liquefied gas is growing fast in the People’s Republic of China. According to the BP forecast, the demand on gas in China will grow more than twice in the next 20 years. At present time, gas supplies to the PRC by pipelines make around 40 percent from total volume of gas import. In this context, the supplies of natural gas from Turkmenistan are very important for provision of energy security of China.

As is known, the Central Asia – China pipeline includes three parallel lines (A, B and C) of 1,830 kilometres each. It is connected with 10,000 kilometres West – East gas line at the territory of the PRC. At present time, gas from Central Asia is supplied to 25 provinces, autonomous regions, large cities and special administration district of Hong Kong.

More than 263 billion cubic meters of gas have been exported to China from Central Asia from the moment of putting the pipeline into operation in December 2019. At the same time, Turkmenistan provides more than 80 percent of gas supplies.

In addition, technical aspects of construction of export gas line in Caspian Sea have been discussed during the session. Nowadays, when everything is clear with the legal status of Caspian Sea, this subject became actual again. At present time, Turkmenistan reviews the capability of gas supplies in western directions to Europe. At the same time, there are technical capabilities of gas export to Iran. Supplies of gas to Russia by Central Asia – Centre pipeline according to the short-term contract with Gazprom have been resumed. Middle-term contract for five years is under negotiation at present time.

Therefore, attraction of big investments and modern technologies for development of hydrocarbon resources and implementation of joint international projects in this sphere are important conditions and the main factor of perspective and intensive development of oil and gas industry of Turkmenistan and the country has all conditions for this.

The first day of the Forum was completed with the session on the theme Monetization of gas: The way to diversification and growth. The spokesmen mentioned that Turkmenistan carries out large-scale work for opening of new facilities for oil refining and gas processing producing various petrochemical goods required both in local and foreign markets.

For example, Garabogazkarbamid Plant with production capacity of 1,155,000 tons of carbamide fertilizers has been put into operation in Caspian Region last year. The main part of the production of the facility is going for export.

Polymeric plant has been opened in Kiyanly settlement. This super modern petrochemical complex has been built by the work order of the State Concern Türkmengaz by LG International Corporation and Hyundai Engineering (The Republic of Korea) with the participation of TOYO Engineering Corporation (Japan). Production facilities of the plant are able to process 5 billion cubic meters of gas per year and to produce 386,000 tons of high-density polyethylene and 81,000 tons of polypropylene.

President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and President of the Republic of Korea Moon Jae-in paid great attention to this project at the high-level meeting in April this year. Significant package of documents including on cooperation in energy sphere has been signed by the outcomes of the talks in Ashgabat.

For example, the agreement on the establishment of joint venture for sale of production of Kiyanly petrochemical complex in the world including Asian markets has been reached between NaPeCo National Petroleum Corporation and LG Intenrational.

In addition, the Ministry of Textile Industry of Turkmenistan and Korean Institute of Industrial Technologies will study the capability of production of textile synthetic fibre from the polymers produced by the plant in Kiyanly. Therefore, full chain from production and processing of raw material to making and sale of commodities with high added value will be made in gas industry.

At present time, synthetic gasoline production plant is under completion in Kiyanly. Provided with latest equipment, the facility will process 1,782,000,000 cubic meters of natural gas and produce 600,000 tons of Euro 5 standard A92 gasoline as well as diesel fuel and liquefied gas per year.

According to the Programme of social and economic development of the country in 2019 – 2025, the diversification of oil and gas industry will be continued. Construction of new petrochemical complexes for production of synthetic gasoline, rubber and polystyrene, methyldyethanolamine, polyvinyl acetate and other polymers are among the projects to be implemented.

High growth rates of national economy, large-scale programmes for development of industrial complex, import substitution and improvement of export potential of the country open wide opportunities for further development of beneficial cooperation with foreign business circles, the participants highlighted.

Tbilisi, 23 October 2017 – Yesterday, an Electoral Assessment Mission of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe has been concluded by a joint press conference with OSCE/ODIHR in Tbilisi (Georgia). The Delegation was composed of the two Thematic Spokespersons of the Congress on election observation, Stewart DICKSON (United Kingdom, ILDG) and Jos WIENEN (Netherlands, EPP-CCE) , and Vice-President Barbara TOCE (Italy, SOC) and it  joined forces with the Election Observation Mission deployed by OSCE-ODIHR in order to evaluate the local elections held on 21 October in Georgia.

Presenting the preliminary conclusions from the perspective of the Congress, Stewart Dickson confirmed that the electoral procedures were followed carefully by the electoral commissions in the large majority  of the 30 polling stations visited by the three teams of the Congress.  “However, it appears that there was some confusion in certain polling stations about the collection of information  by domestic observers, or rather party proxies,  with regard to individuals who had cast their vote", he stated. He also drew the attention of the Georgian authorities to the misuse of public resources during the campaign which seemed to be of specific relevance at the local level. 

Concerning the Georgian law that currently allows voters who are registered at a permanent or a temporary address to cast a ballot in local elections, DICKSON referred to Congress Recommendation 369 (2015) which provides that only voters who are permanently residing in a specific municipality should be enfranchised at the local level. “We would welcome if the Georgian authorities could take this into consideration for future reforms and this would also complement their efforts to establish the accuracy of voters' lists which is very welcome by the Congress” he added.

In addition, he mentioned the situation of local self-government in Georgia which was at the center of these elections. “Decentralisation and the strengthening of municipalities and regions are still in the early stages of development, all the more it's important for Georgia to develop the capacities of local authorities and continue decentralisation also in terms of financial devolution” DICKSON concluded and underlined the willingness of the Congress to further support the Georgian authorities in their endeavours.

***

Observing local and regional elections is one of the action priorities of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities. This activity complements the political monitoring of the European Charter of Local Self-Government, which constitutes the cornerstone of local and regional democracy in Europe. It contributes to ensuring the integrity of elections and building voters’ confidence at grassroots’ level. Since 1990, the Congress has conducted about 100 election observation missions in some of the 47 Council of Europe member states and beyond.

China Focus: CPC officials confident of poverty alleviation success

Published in World
Saturday, 21 October 2017 17:17

 BEIJING, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -- By the end of this year, the 19 impoverished households, most of whom include people with physical or mental disabilities, in a remote village in northwestChina, will be lifted out of poverty thanks to government assistance. 
   Through heavy investment in infrastructure, financial support for animal husbandry and agriculture, some 177 families, or about one quarter of the Zengjipan village in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, have already been lifted above the poverty line, said Zhu Yuguo, a delegate to the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China and village Party chief. 
   The ongoing congress has reaffirmed the nation's target to eliminate poverty in 2020 to achieve its goal of a moderately prosperous society. At the end of last year, China had 43 million impoverished people living in rural areas, after 55 million people were lifted above the poverty line from 2012 to 2016. 
   Despite difficulties, a number of congress delegates from impoverished areas across the country have expressed their confidence in accomplishing the target. 
   "With favorable Party and local government policies, our villagers have worked hard and now have much improved lives," said Zhu. "The residents sincerely thank the Party for the great changes over the past few years." 
   Zhu said that previously the village had rough roads, no nearby drinking water sources, suffered frequent droughts and villagers were very poor. 
   Now, residents have new homes, paved roads, tap water, community centers and money in their pockets. The per capita income reached 8,200 yuan (1,240 U.S. dollars) last year, compared with just 2,400 yuan in 2010. 
   "It's encouraging that the Party has a consistent policy to tackle poverty. Some 500,000 people are still living in poverty in my city," said Liu Xuerong, Party chief of Huanggang City in Hubei Province and delegate to the congress. 
   This year, nearly 180,000 people are expected to be lifted out of poverty in Huanggang. 
   "Financial assistance plays a crucial role," Liu said. By the end of September, the city's outstanding loans for poverty relief increased by nearly 40 percent year on year to 16.3 billion yuan. Special insurance has been made available for farmers who make a living by raising goats or other livestock, or growing crops such as tea, ginger or Chinese yams. 
   "Eliminating poverty is a vital step for the country to achieve socialist modernization. In Huanggang, we have confidence in this," Liu said. 
  Poverty alleviation efforts will continue the momentum in Tibet Autonomous Region to ensure the region does not fall behind in the national endeavor to build a moderately prosperous society, said Norbu Dondrup, vice chairman of the regional government and delegate to the CPC congress. 
   At the end of 2016, Tibet had 442,000 people living below the national poverty line out of a total population of about 3.2 million. 
   The government will help herders and farmers develop businesses. Children from poor families will receive subsidized college education, and the government will help young graduates find jobs and start businesses so they can support their families, according to the delegate. 
   "Grassroots Party organizations must be strengthened to act as the backbone for poverty reduction," said Wang Liangcheng, a congress delegate and first secretary of the Party branch in Limin Village in southwest China's Sichuan Province. Wang, deputy head of the county pricing supervision bureau, was sent to the village to help with poverty relief efforts in 2015. 
   He has helped the village plant crops and establish cooperatives to increase farmers' incomes. Currently, 103 previously poor families in the village have moved into new houses and now live above the poverty line. 
   The number of impoverished people in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region had dropped from 2.6 million in 2013 to 1.2 million by the end of 2016. 
   "We have the confidence and the methods to lift the remaining impoverished households out of poverty by 2020," said Niu Xuexing, Party chief of Hotan Prefecture, in southern Xinjiang and delegate to the congress.
