Strategy to Make China a Talent-Strong Country

A national plan of action to develop a quality workforce (2002-2005) was launched by the CPC Central Committee in May 2002. Talent development was included in the Constitution of the CPC and the report to the 17th CPC National Congress in 2007 as one of the three basic strategies. It was also incorporated in the report to the 19th CPC National Congress in 2017 as one of the seven strategies for completing the process of building a moderately prosperous society.

Talent development and the development of education and science and technology are mutually reinforcing. Our talent strategy focuses on the need to expand our talent pool and better use talent to advance toward our goal of building a prosperous country.

The report to the 19th CPC National Congress pointed out that it is important to have in place a more proactive, open and effective talent policy that guides identification, recruitment and retention, and encourages bold moves and competitive measures to welcome much needed experts in various fields into our team from both within and without the Party and from both within and without the country. It is also important to encourage skilled personnel to work in grassroots communities, remote areas, border regions with mainly ethnic minority populations, and old revolutionary base areas. A favorable talent development culture is needed to inspire everyone to discover and develop his or her own talent and to realize his or her full potential, so that together we will unleash our collective creativity.

As part of our national development strategy, the talent development strategy is fully in line with national strategic development goals and by ensuring talent supply, supports efforts to complete the building of a moderately prosperous society and realize the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation.
