The fourth sessions of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and National People’s Congress (NPC) took place from 4 to 11 March. Although COVID-19 cases have been largely contained in China, the Two Sessions ended sooner than expected lasting for only eight days instead of the normal two-week duration.
The year 2021 is special, because it is the first year of the 14th Five-Year Plan, and China’s Communist Party will commemorate its 100th anniversary in July. More importantly, this year marks the first step of a 15-year new journey to build a modern socialist country in an all-round way (becoming a developed country by 2035), as the Chinese saying goes, “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”.
