Abstract
The Socialism of the 21st century in Latin American countries, a result of long-standing political, economic and social contradictions, was put forward by President Hugo Chavez to reform the country. As an overall development strategy, ''Socialism of the 21st century'' is a breakthrough for developing countries to get rid of the "Washington Consensus" and Western model, its exploration and practice has epoch-making significance. However, there are no established procedures to fulfill the construction of the “Socialism of the 21st century” in Venezuela and other Latin American countries within a certain period of time. The Chavez government pushed forward the socialist cause through the trial and error process, facing challenges to resolve the conflicts between short-term and long-term interests and achieving the balance between social equity and economic efficiency.
