1. This report clearly indicates that the Communist Party of China has drawn up a two-stage development plan for the period from 2020 to the middle of the century to develop China into a great modern socialist country. This new thought will still lean on "old" ideas incorporated into Chinese socialism, but also will include new ideas that arise from modern society, a society that will succeed in beating unbalanced and inadequate development and will correspond to people's ever-growing needs for better lives.

2. The two-stage development plan has a main goal; to turn China into great modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, harmonious and beautiful. Considering all previous Chinese plans, there is no doubt that such a goal is achievable because both the Chinese government and the Chinese people are dedicated in fulfilling their duties. The most impressive thing is that common interest is always put above the interests of the individual.

3. In the international sense, China is already regarded as a modern economy. In future, that development will be even faster because of China's plans to develop more in its western provinces. Also, it is important to underline the tremendous achievements in the fight against poverty and the successful reduction in the number of poverty-stricken people to 70 million.

4. The decisiveness of the Chinese authorities and the diligence of the Chinese people can be considered a recipe for success. Setting clear goals, determining the schedule and sticking to it are the reasons the plans have been realized. The Chinese development model should be taken as an example that there is an alternative to liberal capitalism which causes insecurity for ordinary people around the globe.
