The 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-2020) period was a decisive phase of achieving a moderately prosperous society in all respects in China.
During this period, as China faced a complex international environment and arduous tasks for domestic reform, development and stability, especially the onslaught of Covid-19, the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core has led the nation to secure decisive achievements in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and eradicating poverty.
The goals and tasks set out by the 13th Five-Year Plan are about to be accomplished.
China has made a new and major step forward in its economic and scientific power, as well as composite national strength.
The 14th Five-Year Plan period will be the first five years as China embarks on a new journey to fully build a modern socialist country, after achieving a moderately prosperous society in all respects, according to a meeting of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.
China is still in a period of strategic opportunity for development at present and for the foreseeable future, but there are new developments in both opportunities and challenges facing the country, the meeting said.
The Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee urged efforts to master the laws of development, carry forward the fighting spirit, seize the opportunity, meet challenges and forge ahead.
Comments and suggestions from both within and outside the Party have been solicited for the formulation of the 14th Five-Year Plan, including more than 1 million comments from netizens.
