LEADERSHIP CHANGE IN CHINA – Informal Round Table on China – Livestream Wednesday 14 November 2012, 13h00 – 15h00 Livestream
LEADERSHIP CHANGE IN CHINA
Dear colleagues and friends,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
The 18th Communist Party Congress comes at a crucial period for the country. The challenges awaiting the new Chinese leadership are paramount. AsChinacontinues to rise, the choices this leadership will make and will implement are going to resonate globally. ForEuropethere will be wide ranging implications concerning trade, investment and monetary policy as well as strategic foreign policy and security issues.
To what degree does the outcome of the 18th Party Congress allow informed assumptions about the course to be followed by Beijingin the future? The Chinese leader has recently shown relevant internal divisions more openly than in the past. Will the new 5th generation leaders steer the People’s Republic into unknown waters and experiment with new ideas? Or will the new leadership – as has been suggested – carry out a shift to the left?
