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.

  1. This excerpt from the Xinhua article is just the kind of thing I like to hear. This is a good indicator of socialist construction in China.

    “Compared with the delegates to previous CPC national congresses, this year’s list features more from frontline production and manufacturing, minority ethnic groups, and women.

    “Among them, 771 delegates are from frontline production and manufacturing, including workers, farmers, and technicians, accounting for 33.7 percent of the total, up by 3.2 percentage points from five years ago.”
