Calligrapher: Ding Shimei

The construction of a Harmonious Society (simplified Chinese: 和谐社会; traditional Chinese: 和諧社會; pinyin: héxié shèhuì) is a socio-economic vision that is said to be the ultimate end result of Chinese leader Hu Jintao's signature ideology of the Scientific Development Concept.
It serves as the ultimate goal for the ruling Communist Party of China along with Xiaokang society, which aims for a "basically well-off" middle-class oriented society. 

First proposed by the Chinese government under the Hu-Wen Administration during the 2005 National People's Congress, the idea changes China's focus from economic growth to overall societal balance and harmony.The idea is clearly visible in banners all over China. The idea has been described as resembling characteristics of New Confucianism in some aspects.

In a country where political class struggle and socialist slogans were the normative political guidelines for decades, the idea of societal harmony attempts to bring about the fusion of socialism and democracy.
