Primary stage of socialism
Hi! Welcome to “About China”. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. In today’s program, we will talk about “primary stage of socialism”.
This is not a general reference to the initial stage any country will go through when practicing socialism, but a term for the special stage that China has to undergo with backward productive forces and an underdeveloped commodity economy.The theory of the primary stage of socialism has two connotations: one, China already has a socialist society, which it must continue to develop and never abandon; two, China's socialist society is still in the primary stage and will remain so for a long time to come, and it is a stage that must be recognized and cannot be skipped.
China is in the primary stage of socialism and will remain so for a long time to come. This is a historical stage that cannot be skipped in the socialist modernization of China, which is backward economically and culturally. The process will take over a hundred years.
