As one of the buzzwords in the 20th CPC National Congress report, Chinese path to modernization is widely discussed and decoded both at home and abroad.

The central task of the CPC will be to lead the Chinese people of all ethnic groups in a concerted effort to realize the Second Centenary Goal of building China into a great modern socialist country in all respects and to advance the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation on all fronts through a Chinese path to modernization, according to the report.

Chinese path to modernization contains elements that are common to the modernization processes of all countries, but is more characterized by features that are unique to the Chinese context.

The term plays a pivotal role in the report, said Lu Binghui, delegate to the 20th CPC National Congress. Looking at the structure of the report, you can see that this part is a key node, which has drawn up a blueprint for China's future.

Chinese path to modernization is a development mode with Chinese characteristics led by the CPC, said Gu Qingyang, associate professor of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy of National University of Singapore, adding that this will have an important positive impact amid big global changes.

Up until now, no more than one billion people in advanced countries and regions have completed the process of industrialization. With a population of more than 1.4 billion people, Chinese modernization is a task of unparalleled difficulty and complexity.

The report pledges that the CPC will, as always, bear China's realities in mind while addressing issues, making decisions and taking action.

To meet people's aspirations for a better life is the immutable goal of Chinese modernization, said the report, while highlighting material abundance and cultural-ethical enrichment as its fundamental goals.

Many international experts point out that this is beneficial to the world. As the living standards of Chinese people continue to improve, it will unleash huge consumption potential, creating a boon to the world.

China is developing itself and modernizing itself, and at the same time helping other countries to develop and modernize, said Keith Bennett, a China specialist, who spoke highly of Chinese path to modernization, citing the Belt and Road Initiative and the Global Development Initiative were proposed by China in 2013 and 2021 respectively.

While pursuing higher living standards, China is also committed to sustainable development, vowing to achieve a modernization of harmony between humanity and nature.

To achieve Chinese modernization, for the first time, the report proposes nine essential requirements, including upholding the leadership of the CPC and socialism with Chinese characteristics, pursuing high-quality development, and building a human community with a shared future.
