CPC Nineteenth Congress

What a great time to be in Beijing. In about two weeks the most important Communist Party congress in history will take place here. It is the nineteenth congress of the CPC, which will assess developments over the last five years and lay out plans for the next five. Preparations have been underway for a year or more, not least being the long process of electing the 2,287 delegates. For more information on the election process, see Xinhua news.
