18th CPC Na­tional Congress

The 18th CPC Na­tional Congress was held in Novem­ber 2012 as the world was un­der­go­ing ma­jor de­vel­op­ment, trans­for­ma­tion and ad­just­ment. The Congress added the Sci­en­tific Out­look on De­vel­op­ment to the Party Con­sti­tu­tion, set a course to un­wa­ver­ingly walk the path of so­cial­ism with Chi­nese char­ac­ter­is­tics and de­signed the goal of build­ing a moder­ately pros­per­ous so­ci­ety in all re­spects. The Congress elected the new Chi­nese lead­er­ship with Xi Jin­ping at the core, lift­ing Chi­nese peo­ple to a new his­tor­i­cal point to pur­sue na­tional re­ju­ve­na­tion, world peace and com­mon de­vel­op­ment.

China’s First Air­craft Car­rier

China’s first air­craft car­rier, the Liaon­ing, was com­mis­sioned into the Peo­ple’s Lib­er­a­tion Army Navy in 2012. The ves­sel is a re­fur­bished for­mer Soviet air­craft car­rier that went through eight years of retrofitting. The air­craft car­rier de­ployed in the North Sea Fleet man­i­fests China’s emerg­ing naval power and com­pre­hen­sive na­tional strength.
