Into the Next Century

A full century has passed since the Communist Party of China (CPC) was founded in 1921. After 100 years of vigorous growth, the CPC has become the world’s biggest ruling party that has governed the world’s largest socialist country for more than 70 years and owns more than 91 million members. The CPC has led the Chinese nation to make a great leap from standing up to growing rich and becoming strong, creating a “Miracle of the East” that has attracted worldwide attention.
