Xi Jinping's Reform Agenda After China's Third Party Plenum
The Asia Society Policy Institute is pleased to announce the launch of its AsiaConnect briefing series, a monthly teleconference briefing on pressing issues in Asia and U.S.-Asia relations, made possible through the generous support of Mitch and Joleen Julis.
For our inaugural AsiaConnect briefing, Asia Society's Orville Schell will discuss the outcomes of the Chinese Communist Party's Third Plenum. At this meeting of the Party's Central Committee, President Xi is expected to unveil his economic reform agenda, providing important insights into the priorities and policies of the current generation of Chinese leaders.
