Sibylline Live Briefings: China After the 20th CCP National Congress
Sibylline will hold two webinars following the conclusion of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) 20th National Congress as part of coverage for this historic and consequential political event. The quinquennial gathering in Beijing will usher in major personnel changes among China's top decision-making bodies, though CCP General Secretary Xi Jinping is expected to further cement his 'core leader' position by securing a third five-year term. The congress will also set forth the party's vision for China's political and economic development for the next five years.
Against the backdrops of dual domestic and foreign complexities, such as geopolitical uncertainties underpinned by an intensifying China-US strategic rivalry and the Russia-Ukraine war, and a notable economic downturn amid tight Covid-19 restrictions, the new CCP leadership will need to resolve a myriad of challenges. Our country experts will assess the current and future political, social and economic issues facing Xi Jinping and his new team, as well as China's likely trajectory regarding its foreign policy and national security over the next five years. The webinars will also assess the implications for the regional business environment and global supply chains.
