Five-Year Plan, the full name is the Five-Year Plan for National economy and society development, has been in effect since 1953 and is the core plan of the CCP with a five-year plan implementation cycle and the goal of strengthening national power, now planned and implemented by the CCP National Development and Reform Commission, and can be likened to the Roosevelt New Deal during the period 1933-1938. 2016-2020 is its thirteenth five-year plan (referred to as the “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan”).

The plan is supported by the central and local treasuries, the Foundation Board, and various local government science and technology funds. The five-year plan in turn contains sub-projects under it called the National Key R&D Program. In general, the CCP’s Five-Year Plan is the largest in scope and basically includes the other two plans, which can be understood as the 973 Program and the National Key R&D Program for Infectious Disease Control (a sub-project of the National Science and Technology Major Project), all of which are sub-projects of the CCP’s Five-Year Plan. These are sub-programs of the five-year plan of the CCP.

Statistics of national major special projects of the 13th Five-Year Plan from 2016-2018 compiled from public information on the Internet (This table is incomplete, and there are still unpublished confidential projects), including those named “Protein Machine and Life Process Regulation” (No. YFA05), “Key Technology R&D for Biosafety” (No. YFC12) and three different subject categories named “Prevention and Control of Major Livestock and Poultry Diseases and Integrated Technology Development for Efficient and Safe Farming” (No. YFD05) involve a large number of research topics related to viruses. The content of these topics and their participants should be an important direction for COVID-19 investigation.

Based on media information and government disclosures, the 2016 Virus Program is a successor to the CCP’s 2005-2015 Virus Program and is included in the CCP ‘s 13th Five-Year Plan and the 2016 Communicable Disease Control Program. This section will present the details of the 2016 Viral Program, as well as provide some perspective based on the implied messages behind them.
