    Xi Jumping is expected to be the next Helmsman who will guide the destiny of China.

    The question are important.

    One wonders what will be what the man will do.

    What do you think he should do keeping the issues in the questions in view?

    Maybe out Chinese posters could help!

    His wife is supposed to be a great singer!

    An ideal combination!

    But what will his take on the issues be?

    •1. If he is a conservative then Xi will not return to a politically reformist path for the Chinese Communist Party. There will be NO reforms to be expected.


    • 2. One wonders if Xi and the next prime minister (the contenders are reportedly Vice Prime Ministers Li Keqiang and Wang Qishan) can turn the rhetoric of economic “rebalancing” into reality. Or would he? Given the way the economy of the world is going, if China is to sustain its Peaceful Rise, it will have to jiggle its economy and the only answer is creating a domestic market. Will he be able to do so?

    •3. I don/t think that Xi be able to devise a more humane policy toward Tibet and Xinjiang, where ethnic unrest has steadily risen since 2008 and has spiked in recent weeks. It will go against the Han cultural supremacy policy that is a historical legacy and it will go against the other historical legacy of turning all people into Hans by assimilating them.

    •4. Nationalism is an ideal vehicle to keep the mind of the people of the negativeness of Govt decisions. Therefore Xi and the party apparatus will continue to allow nationalism push the government even if it forces the Govt to take extreme positions on territorial disputes with China’s neighbours and to “stand up” to the United States and behave aggressively internationally?

    • 5. Whether Xi is sufficiently confident to lift all the relaxation of tightened controls on mainstream media, social media, the Internet and educational institutions, he will not do so since it will give rise to dissident thoughts and that could be dangerous for Xi and the CCP.

    •6. Can Xi reign in the military, which has demonstrated a worrisome tendency in recent years to undertake actions that provoke China’s neighbors and, seemingly, act independently of civilian party control?

    I don't think so. The military is getting confident by the day of its military arsenal and will be itching to tests its prowess and the tactical knowledge of its military commanders.

    •7. Xi will not authorize a foreign policy that is more about substance than rhetoric because rhetoric is the staple of Chinese thought!

    •8. This will be a challenge for China and Xi to handle the growing discontent across Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America over China’s rapacious and mercantilist energy, aid and trade policies. It is too complex and Xi will not be able to solve it in the immediate future.

    •9. Xi and the Chinese government will not begin to take more active and less passive, more supportive and less obstructionist, roles in global governance since it will go against the Chinese policy of having its feet on both boats. It will continue to stand with Russia in the United Nations Security Council against the will of the majority of other nations on issues like Syria and Iran — and become part of the solution instead of part of the problem because China's interest in Russia is greater than in distant and faraway lands as Syria and Iran.

    •10. It will all depend in the perception of Xi as to what is meant to be the strategic foresight that China should invest in advancing the relationship with the United States.

    There is no more important relationship for either country in the world today, yet strategic mistrust permeates the current relationship. Advancing the relationship requires the active engagement of China’s next leader — and the American president — to build strategic trust between the two great nations.

    He doesn't frame the policies completely. The CCP does. So naturally, he would try to comply with that without annoying the rest of CCP members too much in the beginning.

    Depends on what we get there; Zia or Haseena.

    I don't think the Chinese posters are cleared by their Party to answer the question and so they will go down the usual way - obfuscate and tangentially spiral the discussion in to oblivion!

    One cannot blame them.

    They are not empowered as citizens to speak as a citizen in a democracy can!

    I sympathise with them and their anguish!

    I really wonder what is the policies that Xi Jumping will follow.

    Their face reveals nothing!

    Poker face!

    Is he a Northern Chinese or is he a happy go lucky Southern Chinese, who love and understand the good things of life.

    The Northern chaps are as cold as their terrain and the cold wind and their winters.

    They used to have earthen bed with fire going on under them so that they could sleep!

    this is not like most western countries' electoral politics.but there is similarities.

    as we all know,CCP is the ruling party of china.so the president of the CCP should be the president of china naturally.or,the power will be separated.and that would lead to problems for policy implementation.just imagine that Obama is the president,but Republican Party controled the senate and House of Representatives.of cause,china is not two-party politics,the problem should not be that serious.but as CCP is the ruling power,if china have two leaders,a leader of CCP and a leader of the country,there should be problems.

    back to your question,how:

    how does Sarkozy become the leader of UMP
    how does merkel become the leader of CDU
    how does YASUO FUKUDA became the leader of Partai Liberal Democrat Jepang

    there r some similarities.

    in a word,china combines country leader with party leader.once the party leader is confirmed,the country leader is confirmed.in some other countries,a party leader should be confirmed first,then they competes to be the country leader.

    @Chinese members

    Why are you still replying him after reading this?

    He has made it clear that anyone who can not give answers satisfying him is fooled by CPC. How many of you are capable of doing that?

    yes, unfortunately they do not seem to be interested in objective answers.

    if they dont like the answer, then we are brainwashed. if they like the answer, then we have defeated the brainwashing.

    it doesnt matter if it is true or not or objective or not.
