The era of social construction has arrived1

WithLu Xueyi

Social construction is an important theoretical and practical proposition facing China in the new century, the new era, and the new situation. Making appropriate adjustment in development strategy, placing social construction in an important strategic position on the premise of taking economic construction as the central task, and implementing the policy of equal emphasis on social and economic constructions are conducive to promoting a coordinated development of economy and society. It should be pointed out that strengthening social construction on the basis of the success of economic construction is also the general experience of development of modernized countries. When great achievements are made in economic construction and social contradictions are relatively prominent, social construction should be strengthened and social conditions should be improved through social system reform. Building a social structure comparable to the intermediate stage level of industrial societies and coordinated with the economic structure is the most important and crucial task of social construction.
