An interactive timeline from Yale University sets out key milestones on the path to launching China’s next development blueprint (2016-2020)
The Chinese government has started the long process of drawing up its next development blueprint: the 13th Five-Year Plan. This crucial document will set targets and guidelines spanning a range of social, economic and environmental issues and informing Chinese policymaking for the period from 2016 to 2020.
But what happens between now and March 2016, when the National People’s Congress is due to pass the plan? The Yale Center for Environmental Law & Policy has put together an interactive timeline, reviewing the key steps taken to create China’s 12th Five-Year Plan and providing a rough guide to the development of the next one.
