CPC Central Committee plenum opens

The Seventh Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) opened in Beijing on Wednesday morning, making final preparation for the upcoming 19th CPC national congress. 

The 19th CPC National Congress, expected to begin on Oct. 18, is a very important meeting to be held when China is at a crucial stage for achieving a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way as well as for the development of socialism with Chinese characteristics. 

The five-yearly event will systematically review the Party's work over the past five years since the 18th CPC National Congress in late 2012. 

It will summarize historical progress and precious experiences in upholding and advancing socialism with Chinese characteristics gained under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Xi Jinping at the core through uniting and leading people of all ethnic groups. 

The congress will also thoroughly examine the current international and domestic situation and draw out guidelines and policies that respond to the call of the times. 

A new CPC Central Committee and a new CCDI will be elected at the 19th CPC national congress.
