The year 2020 marks the end of the 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-2020). China's economic, scientific, technological and comprehensive national strength are improved, and people's living standards have reached a new level after five years of continuous work. In the past five years, fruitful achievements have been made. China's economy maintains a medium-to-high-speed growth, with more disposable income in people's pockets.
Agricultural modernization is steadily advancing, and China has scored consecutive bumper harvests. Achievements of poverty alleviation have attracted global attention, with targets and tasks completed on schedule. The innovation-driven strategy has been implemented in depth, and people's living standards have been significantly improved, especially in the field of medical care and education. The ecological environment has significantly improved by emphasizing pollution prevention.
Looking forward to the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-2025), China will fully and accurately implement the new development concept, have a good start and promote all tasks to a higher goal.
