China, fighting to stamp out poverty, will this year move more than 2 million of its poorest citizens from remote, inland regions to more developed areas, an official of the cabinet-level State Council said on Tuesday.

The mass relocation of people is a strategy targeted at lifting 10 million citizens out of poverty by 2020, Xinhua News Agency has said.
