Xi Jinping: News

Xi Jinping is the current President of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and the Chairman of the Central Military Commission. Jinping’s father, Xi Zhongxun, was a senior CCP functionary who later fell out of favor with the Chinese establishment. Jinping worked as a peasant and manual laborer in a countryside village for seven years. After much struggle, he gained entry into the CCP in 1974 and graduated in Chemical Engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, in 1979. Over the next three decades, Jinping rose through the party ranks, and in 2007, became one of the select few members of the CCP Politburo’s Standing Committee. The next year, he was appointed as the Vice-President of China, and in 2012, he succeeded Hu Jintao as the General Secretary of the CCP. Jinping has been the President of PRC since 2013. Under his presidency, China has demonstrated a more assertive foreign policy and a rise in authoritarianism. After the two-term limit for presidency was removed in 2018 by the National People’s Congress, Jinping looks set to rule as president for life.
