The white paper said under the Communist Party of China (CPC) leadership, the Chinese people “completed the historic transformation from poverty to secure access to food and clothing, to a decent life, and finally to moderate prosperity.”

Moderate prosperity in China, according to the document, is evident in all respects: a buoyant economy, political democracy, a flourishing culture, social equity, and healthy ecosystems; balanced development between urban and rural areas to the benefit of all the people; and high respect for and comprehensive protection of human rights.

China’s realization of moderate prosperity serves as a solid foundation for human rights, the white paper said.

It expounded on the topics in five aspects: achieving moderate prosperity and advancing human rights; ending extreme poverty and securing the right to an adequate standard of living; boosting human rights with development and securing economic, social and cultural rights; protecting civil and political rights with law and governance; promoting social equity and protecting the rights of special groups.

The white paper hailed the realization of moderate prosperity in China, a country with a population about one-fifth of the world’s total, as a milestone in the history of global human rights.

“China’s approach and experience have provided a distinctive path forward for human progress,” it said.
