BEIJING, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese government on Thursday issued the full text of Premier Wen Jiabao's explanation on a proposal that will play a crucial role in shaping the country's development over the next five years.

The Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee's Proposal on Formulating the Twelfth Five-year Program (2011-2015) on National Economic and Social Development was adopted at the Fifth Plenum of the 17th CPC Central Committee that ended Oct. 18.

Wen made the explanation on Oct. 15 when the CPC Central Committee session began.

The proposal stipulated scientific development as the theme of the 12th Five-year Program, said Wen, noting this is also the first time for a five-year program to include scientific development as its theme.

The Scientific Outlook on Development shall be implemented in all sectors of reform and opening-up and the modernization drive, he said.

According to Wen, the State Council will make the draft of the 12th Five-year Program based on the proposal. The draft will be submitted to the National People's Congress session next March for deliberation and approval.
