I think he's good for both our relationship and China's future. My wife is Chinese and has family back there and we've been following it pretty closely, he is pro-American as much as any communist Chinese can be (maybe more so but not blatantly) and his policies will reflect this when the military is looking far more determined and aggressive in Asia.

He has some serious financial hurdles ahead to tackle and has to do some serious work on reforming China's economy and market infrastructure from a manufacturing/exporting economy to a more internally self sustaining one in a tough world economy but the desire for companies to tap into that market share will make it a bit easier for him to manage and restructure if he can manage to work around the old timers and their staunch xenophobic protectionist policies.

I hear what you are saying, he is pro-American and last time he visited here, he appeared to be quite nice to people but yet had a lot of going on deep inside. I bet the military policies will be more aggressive in Asia but have more connection with us at the same time.
At least he doesn't have a sculpture face as the last one did! lol...

I'm not so sure about more aggressive military, I think he may want to scale down the rhetoric especially with Japan they need each other more then is publicly recognized.

Looking at the university education of the 7 leaders, they have 4 economic majors out of 7 !

I think this is a clear indication that economics is going to be the most difficult problem & key driver of policy.

Xi has his 1st degree in basic organic synthesis in the Chemical Engineering department of Tsingwah university. So that gives weight to chemical pollution control. He also has a Doctor in Law awarded for Marxist Theory, ideology & politics. So revolutionary change in political organisation is not on the cards.

Basically, the leadership is aimed at defending China's economy against whatever the next few years are going to be thrown at China.

Zhang Dejiang has an economics degree from the Kim Il Sung University of the DPRK, & he has had a lot to do with the Korean language too. This suggests to me that N. Korea will be a key labour & industrial base for China's consumers.

Yu Zhang Zheng started his education in missile engineering specialising in auto-control electronics. Therefore, he would be the man driving the application of automation in all sorts of fields.

An economics degree from the Kim Il Sung University of the DPRK?! I wouldn't put too much faith in that if I were you.

I do have some concerns that 5 of the 7 members of the standing committee are allies of (former leader) Jiang Zemin. Hu was hardly the most liberal guy, but bringing in Jiang supporters shows some regression. I wonder if we'll see less civil rights in China over the next 5-10 years. (I'd also expect slower reform of China's State-owned enterprises).
