In mid-October, the 20th Communist Party congress will take place in Beijing. President Xi will secure a third term as party chief and key decisions on political leadership will be revealed. This congress is viewed as the most important political event for China in decades as the country is currently facing unprecedented challenges both internally and externally. The new leadership will need to shepherd China's economy through a perfect storm of problems - slowing growth, property sector distress, labour market risks, weak demand at home and abroad, crushed consumer and investor confidence due to continued adherence to zero-covid, energy and power crunches, climate risks, rising debt concerns, and geopolitical tensions influencing business sentiment - as they lead China into its "new era" and towards the "great rejuvenation."
Join us to unpack the party congress outcomes and consider what they mean for China's policy priorities moving forward.
