The socialist path with Chinese characteristics
By taking the socialist path with Chinese characteristics, China must, under the CPC leadership, focus on economic development on the basis of its national realities. Guided by the Four Cardinal Principles1we should continue with reform and opening up. It is essential to mobilize all available resources for development in our push to build a socialist market economy in tandem with a socialist democratic system. No effort should be spared to create a harmonious socialist society that values cultural progress and ecological protection, promotes human development, and strives to bring prosperity to all. In a word, by taking such a path we are embarking on a process of building a modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced and harmonious.
