Unpacking the 20th Party Congress
This year, over 2,000 Chinese Communist Party delegates from around China will convene for its 20th Party Congress, a twice a decade top leadership meeting. Xi Jinping is set to assume an unprecedented third term and there will likely be key personnel shifts below Xi. Beijing could also unveil major policy changes or redirection. What are the key takeaways from this year’s 20th Party Congress? How will this impact U.S.-China relations?
