The Two Centenary Goals were put forth by the Communist Party of China (CPC) at its 18th National Congress in November 2012, to build socialism with Chinese characteristics. The two goals are to complete a moderately prosperous society in all respects by the centenary of the CPC (founded in 1921), and to build China into a modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, and harmonious by the centenary of the People's Republic of China (founded in 1949).
The CPC drew up a development plan for the new era at its 19th National Congress. In the first stage, from 2020 to 2035, we will build on the foundation of the moderately prosperous society with 15 more years of hard work to see that socialist modernization is basically achieved. In the second stage, from 2035 to the middle of the 21st century, having achieved basic modernization, we will work hard for 15 more years and develop China into a great modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, harmonious, and beautiful.
