Economic work next year should prioritize stability while pursuing progress, according to the meeting.

Actions should be taken to safeguard macroeconomic stability, keep major economic indicators within an appropriate range and maintain social stability to prepare for the Party's 20th National Congress, the meeting said.

The year 2021 has been a milestone for both the Party and the nation, according to the meeting, which noted that China has maintained a leading position in the world in economic development and epidemic control, with progress made in scientific strength, industrial chain resilience, reform and opening-up, people's livelihood and ecological civilization.

However, it cautioned that China's economic development is facing pressure from demand contraction, supply shocks and weakening expectations, and the external environment is becoming increasingly complicated, grim and uncertain.

"We must face the difficulties squarely while staying confident," said a statement released after the meeting, citing China's strong economic resilience and unchanged fundamentals underpinning long-term growth.

The meeting called for remaining committed to China's own cause, consolidating the economic foundations, enhancing the abilities of scientific and technological innovation and adhering to multilateralism.

It also urged making proactive efforts to align with the high-standard international economic and trade rules, deepening reform via high-level opening-up, and boosting high-quality development.

The meeting stressed the necessity to adhere to the centralized, unified leadership of the CPC Central Committee, promote high-quality development and pursue progress while ensuring stability.

It highlighted the timing, extent and efficiency of policy adjustments and reform to ensure their steady advancement, as well as coordination and systems thinking.

China will continue implementing proactive fiscal policies and prudent monetary policies for steady economic progress next year, according to the meeting.

It pledged to implement new tax and fee cut policies, strengthen support for small and medium-sized enterprises, individually-run businesses, manufacturing and risk-defusing, and take a moderately proactive approach in advancing infrastructure investment.

Prudent monetary policies should be flexible and appropriate, and liquidity should be maintained at a reasonable and ample level, the meeting said.

It underlined efforts to guide financial institutions to ramp up support for the real economy, especially for small and micro enterprises, technological innovation and green development.

In 2022, China will wield its microeconomic policies to stimulate the vitality of market entities, deepen the supply-side structural reform with a focus on smoothing the circulation of the national economy, and firmly advance the implementation of policies related to science and technology, said the meeting.

Next year's economic priorities also include vitalizing development through policies of reform and opening-up, promoting more balanced and coordinated regional development, and ensuring that its social policies well safeguard people's well-being.

Efforts will be made to boost the employment of young people, including college graduates, and optimize flexible employment and social security policies.

Reiterating the principle that "housing is for living in, not for speculation," the meeting said China will support the property market to better cater to the reasonable demand of home buyers and adopt city-specific policies to boost the virtuous cycle and healthy development of the sector.

The country will also expand high-quality and institutional opening-up, grant foreign-funded enterprises national treatment, attract more investment from multinational companies, and facilitate the early implementation of major foreign-invested projects.




The meeting stressed proper understanding of the strategic goal and pathways of realizing common prosperity.


The country should create and accumulate social wealth continuously, and at the same time avoid polarization.


To realize common prosperity, the nation should first "make a bigger and better cake" through joint efforts of the people, and then divide and distribute the cake properly through rational institutional arrangements, the statement said.


"This is a long historical process, and steady steps should be made toward this goal," it said.


China should strengthen the implementation of the job-first policy in its pursuit of high-quality development and better leverage the role of economic growth in boosting employment, according to the statement.


It stressed efforts to exert the role and function of wealth distribution, stick to the system in which distribution according to work is dominant, improve the policy where remuneration is distributed according to various factors of production, and enhance the role of taxation, social security and transfer payments.


Enterprises and social groups that have the intention and capability of participating in public-interest and charitable activities should be encouraged to do so, the statement said.


It said basic public services should be provided in a targeted manner in fields that concern people the most, such as education, healthcare, old-age care and housing.


Stressing the need to understand the nature of capital and its law of behavior, the meeting urged giving play to the positive role of capital, as a kind of production factor, while effectively reining in its negative effects.


China will strengthen its effective supervision of capital in accordance with the law and prevent its unchecked growth, according to the statement.


In terms of understanding the supply of primary goods, the meeting underlined the implementation of the conservation strategy.


Efforts will be made to enhance the resource production and support capacities, accelerate the development and application of leading technologies for the exploitation of resources including oil and gas, and speed up the establishment of a recycling and reuse system for waste.


More efforts should be made to properly understand, guard against and defuse major risks, according to the statement.


The country should do a good job of dealing with risks, improve the financial legal system, consolidate the responsibilities of local governments, financial regulators, industry regulators and other parties, and make enterprises responsible for resolving their own difficulties.


China should formulate policies to defuse risks and improve the mechanism for handling financial risks, the statement said.


Authorities also emphasized the need to have a proper understanding of the country's carbon peak and carbon neutrality goals. Achieving the goals is intrinsic to advancing high-quality development, which demands unwavering efforts, the statement said.


The phasing out of traditional energy in China should be based on safe, reliable new-energy alternatives, according to the statement.


The country needs to strengthen the clean and efficient use of coal, increase the absorptive capacity of new energy, while optimizing the use of coal and new energy.


The meeting also decided that the newly-added renewable energy and energy used as raw materials would be excluded from the cap on total energy consumption, calling for an early shift from controlling the amount and intensity of energy consumption to controlling the amount and intensity of carbon emissions, as well as the early establishment of an incentive and constraint mechanism for pollution control and carbon reduction.
