TIME: Thursday, September 8, 2022, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET
PLATFORM: Zoom webinar (call-in information will be provided following event sign-up)
DESCRIPTION: As we anticipate China’s 20th Party Congress in fall 2022, questions about the composition of the top levels of Chinese leadership abound. Having led China for nearly a decade, President Xi Jinping has initiated unprecedented campaigns to fight corruption, reform the military, and eliminate poverty, while confronting the public health, economic, and political ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic. What plans, priorities, and challenges lie ahead for his expected third term? Will the leadership changes reveal what political succession will look like going forward? How will factional politics and new elite groups play into the selection of the next generation of leaders?
Join the National Committee on September 8, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. EDT for a webinar with Cheng Li as he reflects on personnel changes coming at China's 20th Party Congress.
