Positions

Hu Angang believes in pursuing China's national interests while at the same time respecting the interests of other nations. He supports a win-win strategy: "The core of the mutually beneficial and win-win strategy is 'a just cause enjoying popular support' - taking into account the interests of our country and other countries and taking into account our own interests and global interests."

In an article by news agency Zhongguo Xinwen She, Hu listed six goals for China to achieve by 2020.

-China should quadruple the GDP rate of growth from the year 2000 to 2020 and rank first in the world in terms of GDP by 2020. The GDP average growth rate should be 7.2 percent. China should keep its macro-economy more or less stable, raise its economic growth quality, optimize the industrial structure, and reduce various categories of consumption.

- China should close its gap in overall national strength compared with the United States from three times to less than two times. By 2020, China should stand among the world's top 10 countries in terms of international competitiveness.

-By 2020, the population of extremely poor people should be reduced by 50 percent, primary and middle school education should be made public, as should high school and higher education. Mortality rates of children and pregnant women should be reduced by two thirds and three fourths respectively, AIDS and other infectious diseases should be brought under control, and the primary health care and social security system should cover the rural population.

-More than 85 percent of the people should be covered by urban unemployment, medical insurance, and basic endowment insurance programs. The incidence of labor disputes, criminal cases, and public security cases should be controlled within five per thousand, six per thousand, and about eight per thousand, respectively.

- The Asian integration process should be guided. The status of national separation should be concluded and national reunification should be realized. The disputes over territories and territorial waters with neighboring countries should be resolved in a peaceful manner. China should stand in the front rank of the world in terms of military strength, enhance its defense and combat capabilities, and set up a wartime-peacetime joint logistics support system for the three armed forces with participation by servicemen and civilians.

-China should constantly enhance its sustainable development capabilities. By 2020, the population growth rate should enter a zero-growth phase and the forest coverage rate should reach 23.4 percent. Safety nets should be set up to prevent and protect from various kinds of disasters. A mechanism should be set up to deal with various emergencies. An urgent aid system should be established.

Hu suggested that in order to achieve these goals, China should balance fairness and efficiency; uphold justice and give the greatest benefits to the vulnerable groups in society; take advantage of social assistance; continue to share and seek common wealth; uphold economic and political democracy; and use public finance according to the interests of the people.
