Q: CPC 18th Conference Opens on 8th Nov, what do you think?

Xinhua new agency (which most know is the mouthpiece of government) carried in its online version the following article.

 

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/china/2012-09/29/c_131881446.htm

 

Which I at least found interesting. Here are some selected quotes;

 

"The era of ultra-high economic growth will soon be fading in China, where policymakers will have to get used to an economy that expands by about 8 percent annually."

 

"But the most pressing issue for the Chinese public is the uninhibited and widespread abuse of power and corruption among government officials and businessmen. A series of systematic and structural problems that have impeded the healthy development of the Chinese economy and society have yet to be resolved."

 

"While maintaining the continuity of its policies, China must also adjust its relations with major powers, developing countries and neighboring countries according to the latest changes in the global situation. Any change in China will inevitably affect the rest of the world in an era of economic globalization."

 

So what do you think? Is the 'new' Chinese leadership going to tackle corruption, are they going to become internationally more dominant, or will they fall away?

Like all politicians everywhere, it's all very meaningless and vague, just like the 'usual suspects' on here.

I was actually trying to highlight the apparent fact that Xinhua news is 'criticising' the government, albeit in a very mild manner.

As it is pretty much a 'given' that Xinhua re-iterates the party line, that appears to beg the question who is criticising whom? Is the outgoing leadership laying down an agenda for the incoming leadership or is it the incoming leadership criticising the old guard and giving an indication of what is to come.

any moron can figure out why the ccp admits to having some problems. it is to fool the general public into thinking that they are working to fix it. politricks 101 . which is why the ccp party line is to to stress that the chinese govt has the same problems as every other country. (please don't over throw us, every other govt is bad too) or blame something out of china's control. bullied by other countries, blame the monetary system (seriously all these problems sprung up after civilizations started using currency).
but they will never fix their problems, which is why they will never actually present a serious plan of action.

Contrary to what Loke said, these people aren't politicians. They're businessmen, bureaucrats, and workers that have been selected by the bureaucrats who work for central committee to publicly approve the policies developed by the central committee. They aren't really crafting public policy, they're just rubber stamping it. You won't see individual members propose their own plans, or factions within the party congress debate the relative merits of one plan over another, as you would in the parliaments and congresses in the western world. So the party congress can't really do anything about corrupt bureaucrats and businessmen (many of whom are probably actually in the party congress) or foreign relations because it isn't within its power to do so.

Of course the Congress isn't going to actually DO anything (apart from what it's told to do). What I found interesting was the report calling on 'the government' to do various things. As I said Xinhua prints what it's told to print, so I found the 'criticisms' interesting as I think they are giving an interesting insight into what's going on in the real government the politburo.

I was just trying to figure who was making those criticisms, the outgoing power brokers or the incoming ones as that may give an indication of what's to come.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
