Sorry Robbie, but the term "Socialism with Chinese Characteristics" wasn't first used until the 13th National Congress, in 1987, when Zhao Ziyang delivered a report entitled, "Advance Along the Road of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics".
He wrote that China was a socialist society, but that socialism in China was in its primary stage; a Chinese peculiarity which was due to the undeveloped state of the country's productive forces. During this phase of development, Zhao recommended introducing a planned commodity economy on the basis of public ownership. The main failure of the communist right, according to Zhao, was that they failed to acknowledge that China could reach socialism by bypassing capitalism. The main failure of the communist left was that they held the "utopian position" that China could bypass the primary stage of socialism, in which the productive forces are to be modernized. On 25 October 1987, Zhao further expounded on the concept of the primary stage of socialism, and said that the Party line was to follow "One Center, Two Basic Points"; the central focus of the Chinese state was economic development, but that this should occur simultaneously through centralized political control (i.e., the Four Cardinal Principles) and upholding the policy of reform and opening up.
It had nothing to do with the CR. The expression, "Socialism with Chinese Characteristics" wasn't first coined until 12 years AFTER the CR.
