China announced a landmark victory in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects, known as a “Xiaokang” society in Chinese, as the Communist Party of China celebrates its centenary.
At a grand gathering in Beijing, Chinese President Xi Jinping said, “We have realized the first centenary goal of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects.”
Xi vowed the CPC will lead the Chinese people to strive for better lives and national rejuvenation.
Founded in July 1921 with just over 50 members, the CPC has grown into the world’s largest political party with more than 95 million members.
The Party had set two centenary goals: The first was to build a moderately prosperous society in all respects by 2021 when the CPC celebrates its centenary, and the second is to build China into a great modern socialist country in all respects by the middle of the century to celebrate the centenary of the People’s Republic of China.
