At a press conferernce organized by the Chinese Embassy in Sierra Leone, Ambassador Kuang Weilin highlighted the two goals which he said are that by 2020 when the country will be celebrating its Centenary anniversary of the Communist Party, “we will try to turn the country into a moderately prosperous one by doubling its Gross Domestic Product and its per capita income as compared to 2010.”
The second objective, he said, is for “China to become a modern socialist country with its strong democratic, prosperous and harmonious country. These were the two goals that were set up during the congress.”
He said these two objectives will be realized and the country will become stronger and stronger.
As part of the developmental stride, the Ambassador said that the economy has developed steadily and rapidly and that the country’s overall national strength has grown considerably.
The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) reached 47.3 trillion Yuan in 2011, and government revenue increased by a wide margin.
The overall agricultural production capacity has increased and grain output has gone up, year after year.
Fresh progress has been made in adjusting the industrial structure and the infrastructure has been extensively upgraded.
Despite this achievement, he said, China is still faced with some challenges, as there are people living below the poverty line and that China is still a developing country.
