Editor's note: In key report to the congress, Xi Jinping presents broad, ambitious and hopeful agenda for China. Below are highlights.
Accelerating the creation of a new development pattern and pursuing high-quality development
To build a modern socialist country in all respects, we must, first and foremost, pursue high-quality development. We must fully and faithfully apply the new development philosophy on all fronts, continue reforms to develop the socialist market economy, promote high-standard opening-up and accelerate efforts to foster a new pattern of development that is focused on the domestic economy and features positive interplay between domestic and international economic flows.
We must uphold and improve China's basic socialist economic system. We must unswervingly consolidate and develop the public sector and unswervingly encourage, support and guide the development of the nonpublic sector. We will work to see the market plays the decisive role in resource allocation and that the government better plays its role.
In pursuing economic growth, we must continue to focus on the real economy. We will advance new industrialization and move faster to boost China's strength in manufacturing, product quality, aerospace, transportation, cyberspace and digital development.
We will continue to put agricultural and rural development first. We will move faster to build up China's strength in agriculture and steadily promote the revitalization of businesses, talent, culture, ecosystems and organizations in the countryside.
We will thoroughly implement the coordinated regional development strategy, major regional strategies, the functional zoning strategy and the new urbanization strategy. We will improve the distribution of the major productive forces and develop a regional economic layout and a territorial space system that complement each other's strengths and promote high-quality development.
We will steadily expand institutional opening-up with regard to rules, regulations, management and standards.
