Achievement in space is important.

There are many needy people in rural China, and one of their needs is pride in their country.  Not that that is lacking in any way, but a modern space program can be beneficial to all, even the very poor.

The only thing America ever found that was new and different in moon rocks was an unusual protein structure called a prion, which is more popularly known as mad cow disease.

The needy people problem will be solved by normal course of economic activity in China itself....
such as urbanization......
loans by chinese agriculture banks or compensation of land acquired to farmers allow them to buy larger land plots or investing in productivity enhancing equipment....the local government and the venture capitalist can invest in infrastructure development.....

by the way.....the first step in the programme is the development of a new generation of space craft.....

something which is already and probably being done at the moment.....
all project planned must be economically viable otherwise it would eventually die a natural death..

and that includes making the rural folks wealthier.....
you cannot just give them handouts.....
you must make them work and produce more......

and THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT.....

Yeah! China announce moon probe!

By 2007, lunar probe and study of space routing navigation system.

By 2024, a manned lunar probe.


I guess, we would need to build that space station first to get used to the concept of "living and working in space" and a potential "pot of gold" as the "middle class wealthy" seeks to have more adventurous holidays!

The Earth needs a space station

But I don't see why a country needs its own one. It's just a waste of resources and opportunities to co-operate.
