What is the most representative event in China in 2012?

For most people, the answer is the 18th CPC National Congress.

Hu Jintao delivered a report to the 18th CPC National Congress on the morning of Nov. 8, highlighting such concepts as "a beautiful China," "doubling the people’s income," "building a comprehensively well-off society," and "confidence in the Party's path."

The new CPC leadership led by Xi Jinping, new general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, made a collective public appearance at a press conference a week later.

Xi's three speeches as the Party’s new leader have attracted extensive attention from both domestic and foreign media organizations. His first speech is about "the people's livelihoods," the second is about "Chinese dreams," and the third is about "governing the country according to the constitution."

The 18th CPC National Congress and the words and deeds of the new CPC leadership have attracted worldwide attention. The 18th CPC National Congress will influence the future of China for five years or even longer.

Some people noticed the concept of "beautiful China" in the report to the national congress, realizing that ecology and environmental protection-related industries are facing new development opportunities. Others noticed the central government’s plans for doubling the people’s income and ensuring fairness in education. The words and deeds of the new leadership have also shown the world their pragmatism.
