With the 19th Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Xi Jinping administration has entered its second term with seemingly more centralized and enhanced power. President Xi recently achieved several important foreign policy changes and his “Thought” has been enshrined into the party charter, which suggests he has gained more power than his predecessor. At the same time, China’s economic policy still swings back and forth between two different schools of thought within the regime. What does the future hold for the Chinese economy and how will its impact on the regional and global economy evolve? How are China’s external policies affecting its neighbourhood? And which scenarios emerge from a political observation of Xi’s second term?
The event was organized in partnership with the Embassy of Japan.
