The Dawn of a New Era: Readout of the 19th Party Congress

November 3, 2017 • 10:30 am – 12:00 pm EDT

The 19th Party Congress appears to be a total victory for Xi Jinping and the dawning of a "New Era." Hosted by CSIS's Freeman Chair in China Studies and Senior Adviser, Christopher K. Johnson, the panelists will discuss whether reality matches appearances, as well as break down key aspects of the 19th Party Congress, including: personnel, the Party as an institution, and the likely trajectory of economic and foreign policy. Following this, the panelists will assess the implications for the United States. Mr. Johnson will moderate the discussion and pose questions to each speaker and then invite members of the audience to ask questions to the panelists.

The China Reality Check Series presents perspectives from academia, industry, and government in order to promote a sustained dialogue on critical and insufficiently understood issues related to China's reemergence as a global power.
