China’s two sessions this year will specify the five development notions stressed in its 13th Five-Year Plan, namely innovative, coordinated, green, open and shared development, said Xin Ming, a professor of Party School of the CPC Central Committee.
Xin made the prediction ahead of the upcoming annual meetings of the National People’s Congress (NPC) and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPC).
The five notions, defined at the 5th Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee last October, have become a guideline for China’s 13th Five-Year Plan, a roadmap for the nation’s development from 2016 to 2020.
Those philosophies, closely related to the lives of ordinary citizens, can address the roadblocks unable to be dealt with by traditional approaches in today’s economic and social setting.
They also serve as a strategic guideline as the Chinese economy enters the “new normal”, focusing more on development quality rather than quantity.
The notions attracted worldwide attention after Chinese President Xi Jinping elaborated on them at the 10th G20 summit held in Antalya, Turkey, last November.
From a global perspective, the five words highlight China’s determination to better integrate the development of China with the rest of world while being further involved in global economic governance. They herald that the country’s economy will open wider to the world as well.
For years, China has devoted itself to global development. Its dazzling performance when fulfilling the UN-initiated Millennium Development Goals is one example. It also supported the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by the UN last autumn.
Xi once stated that China will include implementation of the 2030 agenda as part of China’s 13th Five-Year Plan.
He also suggested that all the G20 members come up with their own plans of implementation to boost strong, sustainable and balanced global growth. Amid increasing interactions brought by economic globalization, countries worldwide will witness increasing common interests.
Analysts believe that the China-initiated notions will effect the world positively when the country accelerates its economy.
Given this backdrop, the international community will attach much importance to China’s upcoming two sessions in the hope of finding development opportunities these notions can bring them.
