China is striving to achieve the first centenary goal of building a moderately prosperous society in all respects. It will be a milestone both for a country with nearly 1.4 billion people and for the Communist Party of China (CPC) to carry forward its founding mission. When it was established in 1921, the CPC had only about 50 members, but its original mission is grand: to seek happiness for the Chinese people and rejuvenation for the Chinese nation. This mission is what has been inspiring Chinese Communists to advance. As the Party is turning 99, many of its achievements are noteworthy: founding a new China, lifting more than 800 million people out of poverty, governing an economy that now ranks as the second largest in the world, and transforming an isolated nation to an open one with diplomatic relations with 180 countries. The country and the Party's achievements have been recognised and praised by politicians and experts in other parts of the world.
