Chinese leaders meet in Beijing to review strategy and map out economic and social policies for the next five years.
The plenum happens at least once a year where leaders from the Communist Party of China’s Central Committee gather in closed session to review government policies and recommend changes.
Faced with slower growth and other challenges, this week’s 5th plenum was expected to re-emphasize reforms in all areas, especially the economy. It will also establish a new 5-year blueprint for the government’s main economic and development initiatives through the year 2020.
