The Two Centennial Goals

The Two Centennial Goals were announced at the 18th National Congress of the CPC in 2012.

The first goal calls for completing the building of a moderately prosperous society, and doubling China’s 2010 GDP and per capita income, by the time the CPC celebrates its centenary in 2021.

The second goal calls for building China into a modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, harmonious and beautiful, by the time the People’s Republic celebrates its centenary in 2049, reaching the level of moderately developed countries.

Ambitious on a national level, these goals also reflect the wishes and expectations of individuals, families and communities. They embody the grand vision and ideals of the Chinese Dream, and pave the way for making the Chinese Dream a reality.

The period between the 19th and the 20th national congresses of the CPC is the period in which the timeframes of the Two Centennial Goals converge.
