The Two Centennial Goals March 16, 2018

The Two Centennial Goals

At its 18th National Congress the CPC presented a roadmap and issued a call for achieving the Two Centennial Goals: successfully completing the process of building a moderately well-off society; and accelerating socialist modernization. Specifically, this means doubling China's 2010 GDP and per capita income for both urban and rural residents by the time the CPC celebrates its centenary in 2021, and building China into a modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, and harmonious and reaches the level of moderately developed countries by the time the People's Republic of China celebrates its centenary in 2049. The Two Centennial Goals embody the grand vision and ambitious ideals the Chinese Dream represents, and achieving these goals will provide the basis for making the Chinese Dream a reality.
