Five words that set the tone for China's development: innovation-driven, balanced, green, open and inclusive
The proposed 13th Five-Year Plan puts forward a philosophy that calls for innovation-driven, balanced, green, open and inclusive development. This philosophy is based on a review of China's experiences in building socialism. It adds a new dimension to the Chinese socialist development theory and will guide the formulation of the official 13th Five-Year Plan and China's development in that period.
Three traits essential to China's future: beautiful, healthy and safe
The proposed plan vows to make China a beautiful, healthy and safe country, a pledge that has garnered attention and anticipation.
To build a beautiful China, priority should be given to strengthening environmental governance. The proposed goals and tasks on building a healthy China illustrate the importance the ruling CPC attaches to people's health. A well-established healthcare system is a crucial part in ensuring that the goal of building a moderately prosperous society is met. To build a safe China, putting people first, public participation and shared benefits are all of fundamental importance. Only by upholding the people's principal role and encouraging them to take the initiative can China move full steam ahead on the safety program.
