2018 marks the 40th anniversary of reform and opening up in China, agriculture, rural areas and farmers were of top priority in the early stage of China's reform and opening up. Therefore, in today’s program, we will talk about “No.1 central document”.
The first document, issued by the central committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the State Council every year, is called the No.1 central document. Now it is a phrase that specifically implies to the CPC Central Committee’s emphasis on problems of the countryside.
From 1982 to 1986, the CPC Central Committee successively issued No. 1 central documents on agriculture, rural areas and farmers drawing up plans for their development for 5 years. From 2004 to 2014, the CPC Central Committee published No. 1 central documents on the Three Rural Issues (agriculture, rural areas and farmers) in consecutive 11 years, highlighting the great importance of the matter during the socialist modernization.
According to No.1 central document of 2018, China will release a national rural vitalization strategic program (2018-2022), which is not only the breakthrough point of rural issues of new era in China, but also an important historical task to carry out in order to achieve the goal of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and building a socialist modern country.
