National Briefing on China’s 14th Five Year Plan

01 Apr 2021

China’s recently approved Five-Year Plan charts the nation’s economic development for the next five years and beyond. It signals President Xi’s ambition for China to stand alongside the United States as a $30 trillion powerhouse economy by 2030.
