By Xinhua

BEIJING - The Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee will convene a key meeting on the 13th five-year plan from Oct 26 to 29, authorities said Monday.

The 13th five-year plan has been one of the most anticipated documents from China in which the party outlines national priorities and sets economic and social development targets.

Setting a target for economic development over the next five years is expected to be high on the agenda.

The 13th Five-Year Plan will be the first five-year plan by the current central government, and the last one before fulfilling the target of building a well-off society in an all-around way before the 100th birthday of the CPC in 2021.

The report of the 18th CPC National Congress said in late 2012 that GDP and the per capita income of urban and rural residents in 2020 should be double that of 2010.

The draft of the 13th Five-Year Plan will be discussed by the Fifth Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee in the last week of October which will then await further discussion and finally, approval at the annual session of the National People's Congress in March 2016.
