The great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is the greatest dream of the nation in modern times. This dream embodies long-cherished wishes of many generations of Chinese, reflects the overall interests of the nation and its people, and is the expectation of every Chinese. Since reform and opening-up, the Chinese people have learnt from historical experiences, theoretically and practically explored the path of socialist economic development with Chinese characteristics, and notched up remarkable achievements.

China has transformed from a poverty-stricken and backward agricultural country to the world’s second-largest economy in a short time. The nearly 1.4 billion of people have not only shaken off poverty, but will soon be a part of a moderately prosperous society; the country’s output of major industrial and agricultural products ranks first in the world. China has become the world’s largest exporter and boasts the world’s largest foreign exchange reserves. The nation enjoys a significant rise in international status and influence, and has gradually become a major powerhouse of global economic growth. From 2014 to 2018, amidst a sluggish world economy, the Chinese economy has withstood downward pressure: gross domestic product (GDP) has increased from CNY64 trillion to CNY90 trillion. The economic structure is being optimized, with enhanced resilience and vitality; its contribution to world economic growth exceeds 30%, becoming the main driver and stabilizer of world economic growth. China is closer to the goal of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation than at any time in history, and has more confidence and ability to achieve this goal than at any time in history.

The path chosen is about a country’s future, destiny and well-being of its people. As historical traditions, cultural heritage and basic conditions of nations are different, their development paths must have their own characteristics. What development path a country chooses is determined by the specific situation of the country. China has discovered the development path of realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation with continuous exploration and practice. One of the successful experiences of China is choosing the development path based on the situation and changes in the international political and economic environment, and the actual conditions of China and sticking to its path.
