What’s the vision of China’s new leaders?

Video duration 24 minutes 40 seconds

From: Inside Story

President Xi Jinping wins a historic third term as Communist Party leader, promoting loyalists in the inner circle.

Xi Jinping is now the most powerful leader since Mao Zedong founded the People’s Republic of China in 1949.

He secured an unprecedented third term as Communist Party leader and strengthened his grip on power by appointing six close allies to the Politburo’s Standing Committee, the government’s top leadership team.

Shanghai party chief Li Qiang is likely to become the next prime minister after enforcing China’s zero-COVID strategy for the country’s most populous city.

Under Xi’s leadership, China has become wealthier, but has also faced more criticism from the West over trade and human rights.
