Last year (2019) was the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Last year, China completed the socialist revolution, promoted socialist construction, and started the new great revolution of reform and opening up, which greatly liberated And developed social productive forces. So after 70 years of development, what is China’s per capita GDP now, and how much does it rank in the world for
China’s per capita GDP ranking?
Looking back on the past, China’s development in the past 70 years can be said It was a qualitative leap. It not only realized the economic and social development by leaps and bounds, but also successfully entered a new era of socialism with Chinese characteristics under the leadership of the party! In the 70 years since the founding of the People’s Republic of my country, the glorious achievements of our country can be understood from the following aspects:
The first aspect is that the Chinese nation has risen from standing, becoming rich, and becoming powerful. 70 years ago, Chairman Mao announced loudly on the Tiananmen Tower that the Chinese people have since stood up. Over the past 70 years, we have completed the socialist revolution, advanced socialist construction, carried out a new great revolution of reform and opening up, and greatly liberated and developed social productive forces. From 1952 to 2018, China's GDP jumped from 67.91 billion yuan to 90.03 trillion yuan, an actual increase of 174 times. Per capita GDP rose from 119 yuan to 64,600 yuan, an actual increase of 70 times, and China's per capita GDP ranking has risen sharply.
Second, China's overall national strength, social productivity and people's living standards have been greatly improved. At present, my country has become the second largest country in the world economy, the largest foreign exchange reserves, the largest trade in goods, the second largest service trade, the second largest foreign investment, and the second largest use of foreign capital. Major scientific and technological achievements have been made in the fields of mobile communications, quantum science, deep-sea exploration, modern nuclear power, manned spaceflight, and supercomputing. Statistics show that in 2018, China's per capita disposable income increased by 59.2 times compared with 1949, and per capita consumption expenditure increased by 28.5 times compared with 1956.
Third, economic construction, social construction, and ecological construction are three-pronged. Over the past 70 years, the three have been continuously developed and improved, which has greatly promoted the improvement of industrial equipment, agricultural productivity and infrastructure networks. According to data, as of the end of 2018, my country's railway operating mileage was about 132,000 kilometers, of which high-speed railways were about 30,000 kilometers, ranking second and first in the world respectively. The highway mileage is 4.85 million kilometers, of which 143,000 kilometers are expressways, ranking first in the world. Medical and health, education, culture, sports, ecological and environmental protection, social security, poverty alleviation and development undertakings have developed in an all-round way.
Fourth, China's industrialization, informatization, urbanization, and agricultural modernization are developing simultaneously. Over the past 70 years, China has made remarkable achievements in its transformation from a traditional agricultural country to a modern industrial country. The ratio of added value of the primary, secondary and tertiary industries has changed from 50.5: 20.8: 28.7 in 1952 to 7.2: 40.7: 52.2 in 2018. With the in-depth development of information technology, residents have become the norm for online shopping, mobile payment, shared bicycle rides and high-speed trains, and these are the four great inventions of today! .
Today, after 70 years of development, China has become better and more prosperous. Per capita GDP is also increasing day by day, and China’s per capita GDP ranking is also rising day by day. At present, China's per capita GDP ranks 106th in the world. I believe that one day, China's per capita GDP ranking will be among the top ten in the world!
