Abstract : Under the leadership of the Communist Party the Chinese people are carrying out majestic plans for construction of socialism in the country. On the basis of a broadly unfolding nationwide movement for a great leap" in the country's development, 28 out of 40 of the most important indices of industrial and agricultural production planned for the end of the-Second Five-Year Plan, i.e., for 1962, were surpassed in 1959. In comparison with 1957, which was the last year of the first Five-Year Plan, the volume of industrial production in 1959 increased by 131.5%, or twice that planned for 1962; of agricultural production by 48.5%, as compared to the 35% scheduled for 1962. The table shows the dynamics of output increases of the chief types of production in 1959 as compared to the control figures for the 1962 plan.
