Caixin Explains: What to Look Out For at the 20th Party National Congress
The Communist Party of China’s 20th National Congress will convene this Sunday to kick off the weeklong political meeting that will set the course for the country’s development trajectories for the next five years.
Some 2,300 delegates representing the party’s 96.7 million membership will gather in Beijing to determine national priorities and elect a new Central Committee, the party’s top decision-making body. The 200 or so members will in turn name the seven people on the Politburo Standing Committee who will lead the country until 2027.
