New Concept for Development

Development is the key to solving all of China's problems. It is a task of top priority for present-day China.

Based on previous experience gained and lessons learned at home and abroad and an analysis of the global trend of development, and targeting problems arising in China's development since 2012, Xi Jinping has introduced a new concept of pursuing innovative, coordinated, green, open and shared development.

In the report to the 19th CPC National Congress, he listed the new concept for development as one of the 14 points of China's basic policy for the new era. In March 2018, this concept was written into the newly amended Constitution of China.

Each of these five concepts is essential on an individual level. Together they are interconnected, forming one integrated whole.

Innovation is the driving force for development. Innovation should be put in the first place in China's development and made the dominant theme in all work of the state and the Party.

Coordination promotes sustainable, healthy development and addresses the imbalance in development. China needs to properly handle major relations in development and enhance integrity of development.

Green is the guarantee for sustainable development and reflects people's aspiration for a better life. Green development enhances harmony between humanity and nature. Coordinated progress of the economy, society and environmental protection will create better living and working conditions.

Openness is a way leading to prosperity. Open development brings interactions between China and the international community. China will develop an open economy at a higher level, and promote reform and development through opening up.

Sharing is an inherent feature of socialism. Shared development underpins social equality and justice. China is committed to having its development fruits through concerted efforts in all fields shared by all in a step-by-step manner, so as to achieve common prosperity in the end.

This new concept for development echoes with the CPC's vision on people-centered development, and answers such questions as what kind of development to achieve and how to achieve it. Innovative, coordinated, green, open and shared development is of higher quality, more efficient, fairer and more sustainable. Such a new concept embodies the CPC's in-depth perception of the basic features of China's new stage of development, and of the dynamics underlying the economic and social development. It will continue to guide China's development at present and in the near future.
