Common prosperity is a basic issue of Marxist theory and a basic vision of Marx and Engels for the future society. As a true Marxist party, the CPC has always taken the realization of common prosperity for all people as its mission. After the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the Chinese Communists, such as Mao Zedong, clearly proposed to take the road of building a strong socialist country and ensuring that the people “achieve common prosperity”. In the process of creating the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, the Chinese Communists, such as Deng Xiaoping, categorically stated that the essence and greatest superiority of socialism is common prosperity. When leading efforts to build socialism with Chinese characteristics in various stages, Chinese Party and state leaders always attached great importance to the issue of common prosperity. As socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era, the Party Central Committee, with General Secretary Xi Jinping at its core, has given prominence to the issue of “doing solid work to promote common prosperity.”
