A report to the National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), more commonly referred to as just the “Party Congress,” is arguably the most authoritative document in the Chinese Party-state ecosystem. It is technically the report of the outgoing Central Committee (here, the 17th Central Committee) at the quinquennial gathering of the Party Congress (here, the 18th Party Congress). Delivered by the General Secretary of the CCP (here, Hu Jintao), the report not only provides an official summary of the Party’s work over the past five years, but also outlines the official Party stance on all major policy issues and sets policy priorities for the incoming Central Committee (here, the 18th Central Committee).
