The Fifth Plenary Session of the 14th CPC Central Committee adopted the Proposal on the Ninth Five-Year Plan on National Economy and Social Development and Long-Range Objectives to the Year 2010 on September 28, 1995.

Long-range objectives to the year 2010 were: to double 2000’s GNP; and to continue to build the socialist market economic system.
