Abstract: The 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-2025) is a critical transition for China’s social and economic development. After achieving moderate prosperity and eradicating absolute poverty in 2020, China will embark upon a new journey towards an affluent society with rural revitalization replacing poverty eradication as a new priority of government agenda on agriculture and rural affairs. In the 14th FYP period, China should increase rural prosperity in all respects, modernize agriculture and the countryside, address food security challenges, raise farmers’ incomes, and roll out rural reforms.

Keywords: 14th Five-Year Plan, rural development, countryside revitalization, moderately prosperous society
