Key points of the 11th Five-Year Plan http://english.gov.cn/2006-03/07/content_246929.htm 2 of 3 8/30/2006 11:01 AM Editor: Letian Pan Source: China.org.cn Key points of the 11th Five-Year Plan GOV.cn Tuesday, March 7, 2006 At a press conference in Beijing on Monday, Ma Kai, minister of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), highlighted some of the key points of interest of the 11th Five-Year Guidelines (2006-2010), which is now under discussion during the ongoing Fourth Plenary Session of the 10th National People's Congress (NPC). Minister Ma stressed that the Guidelines not only follow in the spirit of previous five-year plans, they have been developed in line with the current situation. The following are the key points raised by Ma. -- They adopt the strategic concepts of the "Scientific Approach to Development" and "Constructing a Harmonious Socialist Society." -- The goals set in the Guidelines reflect a keener attention to the issues of humanity, society and the environment, as well as the economy. And for the first time, the development index has been set to "expected" and "restricted to." --A primary goal set out in the Guidelines is the building of a new socialist countryside . -- Although the structure of industry must be further developed and strengthened, the focus is on strength, not scale. -- Also for the first time, efforts are to be made to strengthen the service industries. This is as a result of weakly developed tertiary industry, which has had a negative impact on the overall structure of industry, job opportunities and comprehensive competitiveness. -- The Guidelines also clearly define the concepts of optimized development, key development, restrictive development and forbidden development. -- With regard to the relationship between man and the environment, the Guidelines include two of the basic national policies, namely energy-saving and environmental protection. -- Self-innovation and the training of talent are also prominent in the Guidelines. -- The Guidelines relate not only to development but also to reform. Two chapters are devoted to the aims of both further reform and opening up. In addition, specific areas of reform are expounded in separate chapters on rural development , science and education undertakings as well as the construction of a harmonious society. -- Based on an all-around development strategy of economic growth, construction of a political civilization, cultural and social construction, all definitions, aims, objectives and measures described in the Guidelines are centered on humanity. The third chapter lists the indexes that relate to nine aspects of economic and social development, including two on economic growth, four on economic structure, eight on population, resources and environment issues, and eight on public services and standards of living.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
