Delegation meeting with the World Bank

Dec. 2010: ILI was honored to host a conference on U.S. strategies for poverty alleviation for a Chinese delegation comprised of 25 nation wide senior social service experts when they visited Washington D.C. in December 2010. The delegation was sent by the Poverty Alleviation Training Center under the Chinese State Council.

The conference focused on poverty alleviation strategies that were utilized primarily by the United States as well as other international organizations and how to deal with both urban and rural poverty from national and international perspectives. 

During the conference the delegation interacted with experts from the D.C. Department of Human Services, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. House Subcommittee on Income Security and Family Support, the Office of Rural Development at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the World Bank and a leading international poverty alleviation non-governmental organization.

ILI wishes this delegation well for its efforts and wishes to thank those organizations that contributed generously to the success of this program.
