Objectives for Economic Construction

China's overall economic construction objectives were clearly stated in the Three-Step Development Strategy set out in 1987: Step One — to double the 1980 GNP and ensure that the people have enough food and clothing — was attained by the end of the 1980s; Step Two — to quadruple the 1980 GNP by the end of the 20th century — was achieved in 1995 ahead of schedule; Step Three — to increase per-capita GNP to the level of the medium-developed countries by the mid-21st century — at which point, the Chinese people will be fairly well-off and modernization will be basically realized.
