China has sought information on India's poverty reduction programmes, including the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme, to beef up its own strategy.

A Chinese delegation that met Union Rural Development Minister C P Joshi on Thursday and said the way India has weathered the economic meltdown without suffering much damage, has led them to enquire into poverty reduction programmes like MGNREGA.

The Chinese delegation led by representatives from the State Council Leading Group Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development of China called on Joshi at Krishi Bhawan in New Delhi.

Chinese delegation leader Fan Xiaojian quoted that both the countries are facing similar challenges in tackling poverty reduction for which China is willing to learn from India's experience for the rural poor undertaken by the Ministry of Rural Development.
