The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China

The week long 19th CPC National Congress concluded recently (24th October). Obviously a lot more detail than can be covered in a blog post but the centerpiece is the “Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era”. “The Thought” includes 14 fundamental principals which, collectively, frame a two-step approach which will see China develop into a “great modern socialist country” by the middle of this century. The Straits Times has a nice unbiased series of reports on the Congress.
