General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out, The road of China's development is the socialist road with Chinese characteristics. We are taking this road as it is the choice of history and the people.
Since the founding of the People's Republic of China more than 70 years ago, and especially through the 40-plus years of reform and opening up, Chinese people have made remarkable achievements along this road. China has become the second largest economy in the world. With steadily rising standards of living for its 1.4 billion people, China has created a world miracle in poverty reduction. This has brought about a leap forward whereby the Chinese people have gone from regaining dignity to becoming prosperous and strong.
A look back upon the past is for a better start. The Modern China's Ingenuity series 2ums to comprehensively reflect China's achievements in various fields, especially the historic changes and great achievements of the Party and the state since the 18th CPC National Congress; to profoundly interpret the struggle of the Party and the people since the founding of the People's Republic of China and the inherent logic of China's historic transformation; and to tell the stories of the CPC, stories about New China, and stories about socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era.
