BENS is pleased to host a discussion on China and 20th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party with Heino Klinck, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for East Asia. The National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party is a party congress that is held every five years. The National Congress is theoretically the highest body within the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Since 1987 the National Congress has been held in the months of October or November. The venue for the event, beginning in 1956, is the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. The Congress is the public venue for top-level leadership changes in the CCP and the formal event for changes to the Party’s Constitution. In the past two decades, the National Congress of the CCP has been pivotal at least as a symbolic part of leadership changes, and therefore has gained international media attention. The 20th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party will be held in Beijing, opening on 16 October 2022.[1] 2,300 delegates will represent the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s estimated 90 million members. Preparations for the 20th National Congress began in 2021 and will end with a plenary session of the 19th Central Committee, a few days prior to the 20th National Congress. In 2021, local and provincial party organizations began electing delegates to the congress as well as receiving and amending party documents. It will be followed by the 21st National Congress in 2027.[3]
