March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
China's new government is now in place, with newly-elected
President Xi Jinping and
Premier Li Keqiang at the helm.
China's State Council is also in place and the amount of "No" votes that some of the candidates received belies the "rubberstamp" nature attributed to the
National People's Congress.
President Xi's and Premier Li's rise to those positions have been expected since the
Party Congress last year. With both
Europe and the US still not fully recovered from the financial crisis and given the geopolitical issues in
East Asia and the Korean peninsula, this once-in-a-decade leadership change comes at a crucial time.
China remains the world's most populous country, its second biggest economy and is the largest foreign holder of US debt.
It is against this backdrop that gbtimes continues to provide the
latest news and analysis of China's new government, which began with its coverage of the Two Sessions in
Beijing. The highlights of the report include an
exclusive interview with Lv Xinhua, spokesperson of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and interviews with such experts as Professor
He Wenping on
Jia Qingguo on international relations.
