What Does the Nineteenth Party Congress Tell Us About the China of Tomorrow?

Professor Lei Guang

The Nineteenth National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party will return Xi Jinping to his second five-year term as president. With a consolidated power base, he is widely expected to push for bolder actions on multiple fronts to shape China’s future. What can we glean from the Party Congress — from its personnel decisions to its policy pronouncements — that tell us where China may be going in the next five to ten years?
