China’s Communist Party won’t hold its third plenum until December

  • China’s Communist Party is most likely to convene a key gathering to decide the country’s development strategy in December – the earliest possible slot for the much-anticipated but long-delayed meeting known as the third plenum.
  • Signs that the plenum could be later than usual became clear from late October, when the Politburo, the party’s 24-man decision-making body, did not announce a date for the plenum at its monthly meeting.
  • The earliest window of announcing the date is the next Politburo meeting at the end of November, pushing the third plenum to December at the earliest.
