Every five years, China's central government writes a new Five-Year Plan, a series of social and economic development initiatives, for the upcoming five years.

Before the reform and opening-up era, China's Five-Year Plans were focused on the economy. Since the Sixth Five-Year Plan, which took effect in 1981, the top-level blueprint has incorporated social development as a new dimension in the plan. China has made 13 Five-Year Plans so far. Now, it is in the process of making its 14th Five-Year Plan, which will cover 2021 to 2025. 

This video will go over everything from the development of China's Five-Year Plans to how a Five-Year Plan is written and why a Five-Year Plan matters to every individual Chinese citizen, as well as the nation.
