In recent decades,the wealth gap between civic and rustic areas has widened in China.We can see the hustle and bustle of city life such as Beijing and Shanghai. Meanwhile,there are a lot of people in rural villages have suffered from poverty.Has government provided any help to them? The government has tried to narrow the gap between rich places and poor places.Yet it is not enough to help the people who struggle in their lives.

In fact, besides the goverment,many entrepreneurs in China can give their helping hands to needy people instead of ignoring their poor living conditions.However,China lacks generous philanthropists.Zong Qinghou,one of the richest man in China ,said that the poor people should help themselves.He also believed that they should make their lives better by being more hard working.

He doesn't realise how much effort the poor people had put in their lives in order to rid the poverty.Millions of migrant workers left their homes and families to work in factories in some big cities.They have to live alone in a strange place just because of the higher incomes.They have worked very hard already but there are still many poor people in rural areas.

Narrowing the rich-poor gap is difficult.I hope everyone in China can pay more attentionon on this problem, especially the wealthy people.

The extreme disparity between the rich and the poor becomes more serious in China.

The people in the world just can see the success in China and realize the powerful economic ability. They neglected a flock of poor people in remote districts in China.

Many people who is living in the house with nothing more that mud, eating the insufficient meal everyday, wearing the shabby clothes .Their life do not have any dream, they only want to have a simple life that can no worry and have adequate clothing and food.

I think China should pay more attention on the people who really need the help, solve the problem of the distance between poor and wealth.

I believe that many China’s rich man didn’t care about the society and poor. Most of them just care there wealth and business. They need to help the poor in China and even the world , that is the responsibilities of rich man.

The rich man have enough money to help poor in every area. The poor need the help from rich man. I believe that there are many ways to encourage the poor, the company can create more jobs to let the poor have jobs and built more factories in poor region to create job opportunities . Beside can help the poor ,also can help the economic.

I think the government also need to care the basic need of poor to ensure they can have education, food. Is can also improve the image of China.

First, I disagree that Zong said that poor should help themselves. It is because now they are poor they need our help. Although teach them and help them get rich through hard work are one of the method, the most important thing is help them to left behind in dire poverty. We can help them to improve their living standard. This is the first thing we should do. After that, they can have a better life and also we can give them some jobs and teach them. It can give them a job to earn money and maintain their life.

Second, I am very angry that they have been changes in rural living but not depended on the government’s policies. I think the government should take responsibility to the citizen. If they have problems, the government should help them to solve them. Now some of them are improved but they can improved is because of the rural migrant workers bring back with better wages.

If the government is still doing nothing, the problem of the poor are more serious.

There are huge differences of the wealth gap between urban and rural areas in China. This may become the greatest and the most important issue of the Chinese government.

Premier Wen Jiabao and President Hu Jintao visited the mainland's countryside recently and revealed that increasing wealth and continued poverty. In China, a raft of people still staying in rural areas with poor living standard. The news mentioned that some 150 million people in mainland gained US$1 a day. However, some of the Chinese live in urban and much richer than them. Zong Qinghou, the mainland's richest man, earns US$12 billion a year.

In my opinion, the central government should start a variety of solutions in place. Not only to provide a better-off families, the new two storey homes, a big colour television...etc. More entitlement and welfare should be given. To lift them out of poverty, the exclusive education must be provided to the rural children. At the same time, the China's richest should support the rural people generously because they are all Chinese and it is a social responsibility of the wealthy men, rather than just suggest some concepts of how to help their compatriots.

Ultimately, I believe that the central government can reduce the wealth gap between urban and rural areas.

A penny saved is a penny eared. Powers of people are the same. Therefore, we should also give some support for anyone who is in need.

I agree with Zong. I think the poor people should help themselves because Hong Kong has no poor people, just lazy people. All they need is to find a job. The government should not help them unless they really deserve it.

Some poor people are very hard-working. Others simply don't work hard enough, and I think it's unfair that they get compensation from the government. It is unfair for other poor people, the "real" poor people.

And it's part of the Basic Law that "Everyone should be fair".

China is a developing country. There are many people is poor in China. The founder of China's largest soft drinks maker Wahaha, Zong Qinghou said that, poor should help themselves. I can't agree to this anymore.

The poor become poor because they don't have a stable work to do. They don't have that because their knowledge is not good so they can't find a good job. What's they can help themselves is to learn more about what they don't know and to touch more new things for them to update their knowledge. They will get appreciation because of these so that they can have a stable job easily and earn more money. Finally, they help themselves.

We are lucky because we were born in Hong Kong. We have a comfortable environment in Hong Kong and the government supply free education for 9 years. Therefore, we can obtain knowledge easily. Although I can't feel how poor is the poor Chinese people, I hope they can learn more knowledge to help themselves. If they don't help themselves, no body help them. By the way, I hope everyone who can learn will treasure what they have.
