Comrade Jiang led us in defining building a socialist market economy as an objective of reform and set a basic framework in this regard, led the establishment of a basic economic system for the primary stage of socialism under which public ownership is the mainstay and diverse forms of ownership develop together, as well as an income distribution system under which distribution according to work is the mainstay while multiple forms of distribution exist alongside, and led us in forging ahead with reforms in the economic, political and cultural systems and other fields.
Jiang had forward-looking strategic thinking on building a moderately prosperous society in all respects and realizing the third-step strategic objectives for the modernization drive, noting that in the first two decades of the 21st century, efforts should be concentrated on fully building a moderately prosperous society of a higher standard for the benefit of more than 1 billion people.
He stressed that prosperity provided a nation with a greater say in international arena while backwardness made it vulnerable to attack, and it was imperative for the Party to give top priority to development for governing and rejuvenating the country, focusing wholeheartedly on developing the economy.
He proposed to insist on the combination of "bringing in investment" and "going global" to promote reform and development by opening up. He led China in joining the World Trade Organization, which helped setting a new stage for opening up.  
He led us in developing socialist democracy, implementing the basic strategy of law-based governance, developing advanced socialist culture, realizing the smooth return of Hong Kong and Macao, pushing for the two sides of the Taiwan Strait to reach the 1992 Consensus, which embodies the one-China principle, and vigorously carrying out the major struggles against secession and "Taiwan independence".

He noted that a good job of governing the Party is a prerequisite to a good job of governing the country, and the Party must be governed as strictly as possible. He underscored the commitment to theoretical study, political integrity and rectitude, and proposed to advance the great new project of Party building. He stressed the need to solve the two historical issues of improving the Party’s leadership and governance and reinforcing its ability to resist corruption and ward off risks.
